Lust for Life Paperback
by Irving Stone
No artist has been more ruthlessly driven by his creative urge, nor more isolated by it from most ordinary sources of human happiness, than Vincent Van Gogh.
A painter of genius, his life was an incessant struggle against poverty, discouragement, madness and despair.
Lust for Life skilfully captures the exciting atmosphere of the Paris of the Post-Impressionists and reconstructs with great insight the development of Van Gogh's art.
The painter is brought to life not only as an artist but as a personality and this account of his violent, vivid and tormented life is a novel of rare compassion and vitality.

Review by Cheryl_in_CC_NV
Read before I started writing reviews, back when I was reading mostly SF. I liked it a lot, but given the caveats of my inexperience, I'm really not sure how good it actually is.
