Bad Boy:
My Life On and Off the Canvas

Eric Fischl

Michael Stone

A penetrating, often searing exploration of Eric Fischl's coming of age as an artist, and his search for a fresh narrative style in the highly charged and competitive New York art world in the 1970s and 1980s.

"A brave and beautiful book about the difficulties of practicing as a painter in America, and a reminder of how essential the courage of the pursuit of a personal vision is to art."

Adam Gopnik, staff writer, the New Yorker, author of Paris to the Moon

Soo good, so incredibly honest, vulnerable, real, moving, compassionate; an incredible document of a man's life, an artist’s development and a particular moment in time…the best artist-memoir I've ever read.

A.M. Homes, author of The End of Alice and May We Be Forgiven
