The Representational Man
This book of anecdotes gives the reader an intimate look at the famous and not so famous in their unguarded moments: *Mme de Staël interrupts Napoleon in his bath on the excuse, ‘Genius has no sex.’ *The formidable Dr. Johnson bares his prejudices and his life-long regret for being a bad son. *Picasso reveals his ‘fake’ while Whistler makes himself a living canvas. *Verdi makes his curse take effect on the parish priest who insulted him when he was an altar boy. There are many such little known facts that make history come alive and these are set down in two volumes. 33 illustrations. Anecdotes about 137 personalities.
