About this work

Description

"This is an enormously appealing book about art, and about one of our most recognisable artists. Grayson Perry came to national attention when he accepted the Turner Prize as his alter ego, Clare and wearing his best dress but this funny, unsettling and intimate biography brings us the story of how he grew from a nervous schoolboy, living in fear of his violent stepfather, to a world renowned potter and transvestite."--Publisher's website.
