Summary

Madrid

Unfinished.

Man Dying.

Francis Bacon is on his deathbed. Max Porter reimagines his final dying fever dreams in a magisterial appreciation of one of the greatest artists of all time. It is as filthy, clever, luminescent, dark and wild as Bacon himself.

Critic reviews

"Max Porter writes like no one else and it is impossible not to be swept along and astounded." (Daisy Johnson)
