About the Event

Max Porter – The Death of Francis Bacon

A bold and brilliant short work of fiction by the author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers and Lanny. In a burst of literary brilliance, Max Porter translates into seven extraordinary written pictures the explosive final workings of the artist’s mind. The Death of Francis Bacon is set during the last days of Francis Bacon’s life as he lies dying in Madrid and is written in visceral poetic language which corresponds to Bacon’s style of painting.  One of our most lyrical novelists brings his rich facility for language and psychological insight in this majestic tour de force.
