Product description

Review

"The most remarkable aspect of Grayson Perry's biography is the resilience of the human spirit to which it testifies... There are lovely moments in this book and what really comes across is what a lovely man Grayson Perry is" (Literary Review)

"Gripping and splinter-sharp account of the Turner prize-winning potter's early life and artistic growth" (Sunday Times)

"[A] delightful autobiography... this short charming book ought to be required reading for anyone with artistic ambitions. For everyone else, it can be enjoyed simply as one of those heartwarming tales of happiness and success wrested from the jaws of potential disaster" (Mail on Sunday)

"One of the most gripping and intelligent accounts of an artist's growth I have ever read" (John Carey Sunday Times)

"Charming... oddly reminiscent of Nigel Slater's recent book, Toast" (Saturday Herald)

Book Description

The intimate, funny, unsettling autobiography by one of Britain's most talented and provocative artists, written in his own voice by a close friend.
