Book Description:

Gilbert and George are now recognized as two of the most important living artists on the international scene. In their sculptures, photography, paintings, and performance pieces, they have proven themselves to be both amusing and subversive social commentators. Immensely popular in their native Britain as well as abroad, their work has been the subject of major exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia, and America--including an upcoming retrospective at London's Tate Gallery. Now Daniel Farson, with the full cooperation of Gilbert and George, has written a candid and intimate biography of the artists; entertaining, anecdotal, and richly informative, it reveals what lies behind the art world's most famously inscrutable double act. Daniel Farson is an art critic, biographer, and best-selling author. His books include Sacred Monsters, Jack the Ripper, The Man Who Wrote Dracula, Never a Normal Man, and The Gilded Gutter Life of Frances Bacon, which Book1ist hailed as "a deliciously vibrant portrait."
