Famously witty, eccentric, widely popular, and attractive to women, Peake was also sturdily independent of the literary and artistic movements of his day and achieved cult status even before his early death in 1968. Malcolm Yorke brings us the first objective biography of this brilliant figure, written with the Peake family’s full cooperation. With access to letters, photographs, and drawings never previously published, Yorke charts a life often shadowed by mental turmoil and worry, yet always, until its tragic end, relieved by Peake’s quirky humor and ceaseless creativity.

In good out of print condition.
