AGB BOOK & FILM CLUB: THE DEATH OF FRANCIS BACON
The AGB Book & Film Club continues to meet online with a bold and brilliant new short novel by English writer Max Porter, the author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers and Lanny.
As a great painter lies on his deathbed, the explosive final workings of his mind are translated into seven extraordinary written pictures. An allusive and poetic reimagining of the last days of the artist Francis Bacon in Madrid reads like a private communion with the painter, attempting to capture in language some of the texture of Bacon’s tormented canvases, as well as the chaos of his love life.
