Widely regarded as the best British painter since Turner, very little is known about Francis Bacon's life. In this, the first-ever book to be written about him, Daniel Farson, friend and confidant to Bacon for over forty years, gives a highly personal, first-hand account of the man as he knew him. From his sexual adventures to his rise from obscurity to international fame, Farson gives us unique insight into Bacon's genius.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The most fascinatingly provocative, intimate study of an artist I have ever read - Patrick Skene Catling, Evening Standard

It preserves precisely the aspects of Bacon that will be hardest for scholarly researchers to capture... no-one can convey better than Farson the fun of Bacon's company and the louche adventures of the Soho underworld - Lynn Barber, Independent on Sunday

Positively Runyonesque...well-written, entertaining, and above all, thought-provoking - David Mellor, Daily Telegraph

Startlingly revealing - Times Literary Supplement
