Jean-Michel Basquiat's transition from the subways to the chic gallery spaces of Manhattan brought the artist into the company of many of New York's established and aspiring stars. Unable to deal with the demands that his new fame brought, in 1987, at the age of twenty-seven Basquiat, the most successful black visual artist in history, died from a heroin overdose. This is his mesmerising story, told from the perspective of his muse.

Professional reviews

"A tender and moving account of Jean-Michel Basquiat's life as seen through the eyes of his muse. It is also a profound portrait of New York City during the 1980s' art scene. “Engrossing.” THE TIMES “A compelling book that leaves a giant-sized lump in the throat. [. . .] A vivid portrait of Basquiat, powerfully evoking his inventiveness as an artist.” INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY"
