Reviews

  • "Gossipy, candid, funny, and, as Jarman’s illness takes hold, powerfully moving"

    Choice Magazine
  • "Present on every page is the creative sparkle and compellingly generous spirit of a man who was in every way an uncompromising individual"

    The Times
  • "In these diaries... the artist and film director emerges as a down-to-earth visionary... this perceptive and enjoyable work is something of a miracle"

    Independent
  • "For all his anger, Jarman never seems brutalised. He retains his humanity and his good humour. His is a wonderfully garrulous, mercurial, polymathic daemon"

    Literary Review
  • "Jarman [is] the sort of troublemaking visionary who one day may be compared with Blake"
