A wryly comic account of a career in meltdown, from the author of Measuring the World

'An accessible and humorous road trip into the worlds of art and journalism, satirising both' - New Statesman

Sebastian Zollner is set on writing the biography of the painter Manuel Kaminski.
Yet Kaminski - once a pupil of Matisse, now an ailing recluse - is not the kind of character to willingly embrace such a project.
And Zollner - inept, charmless, and with scant knowledge of art history - is hardly the man to undertake it.
So it's a good job Sebastian has an ace up his sleeve, and that Kaminski will have little choice in the matter...

Half road novel, half satire on the contemporary art scene, Kaminski and Me is a wryly humorous meditation on art, memory, and identity.
