Product story

I write biographies because I am fascinated by people -
by their infinite resourcefulness, by their mystery and power, by the strange patterns their lives make -
and because they give me better plots than any novel I could invent.

Hilary Spurling

An outstanding biography, as full of insight onto the pictures as it is revealing about the man.
Jeanette Winterson, The Times

Taking the reader from 1869 to 1954, chapters include The Runaway, The Revelation of the South, The Wild Beast, Le Vieux Solitaire, In the South Seas and The Old Magician.

557 pages with black and white illustrations.
