  • Superb biography. . . . Holroyd has it all

    Robert Hughes, Time
  • Vastly informative and hugely entertaining

  • An entertaining, essentially comic story... Holroyd tells it with great skill and elegance

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Here is one of the most entertaining lives ever written... Holroyd depicts his subjects with great sympathy and understanding... Very funny... thought-provoking

    Philip Hensher, Mail on Sunday
  • Both a celebration and a tragedy. The celebration of a man of enormous vitality, intermittent zest and remarkable magnetism, and of the most naturally gifted artist that the English-speaking world has produced in the last hundred years; and the tragedy of a man who never came to terms with himself... A wonderfully engrossing, entertaining and even moving book

    Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph
