I've always liked Jackson Pollock's paintings but never really knew that much about him personally. Well, OK, I knew he was an angry drunk & a nice guy when sober. I knew he had major fame after a Life Magazine article about him. I knew most of his work. I even knew he died in a car accident. But this book follows his entire life with heavy detail and it gives you great insight into both his psyche AND art ideas. His work is a lot more than just dripping paint on canvas. I read this book as soon as it came out & have always loved it. It won the Pulitzer Prize & it's very well deserved. I highly recommend it.
