The memoir of English artist and printmaker Julian Trevelyan (1910-1988). Trevelyan recalls his time in Paris, in the war-time camouflage department, as a Surrealist and in his studio on the Thames. His writing is filled with a cast of artistic characters and its gossipy, irreverant tone makes an enjoyable read. With an attractive jacket design by the artist.
