Product description

Review

As well as Jacky's well knowledgeable input Mr Perry himself provides plenty of commentary on his wild and wonderful works of art…this reader is provided with many if not all of the answers to the many, many questions Grayson's spellbindingly unique work throws up. --Proper Magazine

A gorgeously splashy volume, spliced with sharp, sober commentary, and invaluable words from Perry himself. --The World of Interiors

An excellent introduction to this Turner Prize-winning artist and his unique artistic vision. --Artists & Illustrators

[An] insightful dissection of Perry's art. --Metro

Lavish ... Jacky Klein leads us into the warped world of this crossdressing potter with a keen intellect and sharp social insight --Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times

In unraveling the mystique behind Perry, Klein shows why this unlikely artist is, in fact, most likely a national treasure. --Financial Times

Beautifully produced ... insightful commentary ... the definitive account of Perry's achievements to date. --Bexhill Observer

It's my first proper monograph of my whole career ... I'm really pleased ... I like to think of it being on the bookshelves of art historians, researchers and lovers. --Grayson Perry speaking to Folio

Each illustration ... is accompanied by background notes by the artist, giving more than a glimpse into the artist's psyche and making for fascinating reading. --Cover

… an exotic performance, and pulled off with the self-confidence and panache
of a man who is enjoying unprecedented national acclaim and affection. --Martin Coomer, TimeOut

... a maverick cultural critic of ever-growing authority ... an artist of ideas as well as stories... --Boyd Tonkin, Independent

I defy anyone to listen to Grayson Perry's first lecture … and not to be entertained, or entranced, or illuminated, or provoked. From the very first moment … the man who won the Turner Prize in 2003 took us on a coruscating journey through the modern art world …. His easy conversational style … makes him the most approachable of art world luminaries…. Perry has the tonality of a true polymath, and I'm grateful to the BBC for inviting him into my life. --Simon Kelner, Independent

Being a cheeky geezer in a gown lets [Perry] challenge the right of curators, critics and the art market to determine what is good ... He pursues [his purpose] entertainingly. Every laugh he raises, and there are many, comes with a message … we can forget the shock of the frock and just listen to a really smart guy. --Gillian Reynolds, Telegraph

This first of this year's Reith Lectures, given by the Turner prize-winning potter Grayson Perry, was an absolute delight. Perry is such a fantastic speaker: a performer with gags like a standup, but also a thinker with a point to make … It was genuinely lovely to hear Perry fly. --Miranda Sawyer, Observer

His passion for his subject, his desire to communicate it and his lack of pretension drive away all reservations …. His delivery was so immediate, his enthusiasm so infectious, his relish of sharp phrases and cartoonish quips like a wake-up call on how to think. --Kate Chisholm, Spectator
