Waterstones Says

Since his teenage years, Max Porter has been obsessed with the artist Francis Bacon: those disturbing pictures that seem to reflect the horrors of 20th-century history, the mythic biography cast with tragedy. Re-imagining the painter’s last days, the poet reflects on Bacon’s life and art with a raw intensity that parallels the paintings themselves.

Madrid. Unfinished. Man Dying.

A great painter lies on his deathbed.

In a burst of literary brilliance, Max Porter translates into seven written pictures the explosive final workings of the artist's mind.
