By the acclaimed painter, a story about the deceptions of life and the truth of art. About drink, fame and not-fame, forgeries, forgetting. And there are some hand grenades lobbed at some of his contemporaries. As Fischl says, "All artists have to find ways to lie to themselves."
— Jeanette Winterson
