Deborah Solomon is the author of Utopia Parkway: The Life and Work of Joseph Cornell. She lives in New York City.
The soundest account so far of Pollock's life and career.
— Vanity Fair
The improbable mix of Stanley Kowalski, James Dean and Van Gogh never fails to amaze.
— Los Angeles Times
That story has now for the first time been told…in this very good and very sad book.
— Hilton Kramer; Arts and Antiques
Solomon is blunt about Pollock's numerous problems both with establishing his style and with alcoholism and declining mental health. A good, manageable biography for art enthusiasts and lay readers alike.
