About this book
A revelatory portrait of Lucian Freud by his friend and confidant, Geordie Greig. The two regularly met for breakfast and Freud would recount stories of his past and discuss art. In this kaleidoscopic memoir Greig recounts Freud's stories: of death threats, escaping from Nazi Germany, falling out with his brother, painting the Queen and much more. Features many previously unseen photographs throughout.
