Pigeon's Luck Reviews
A good read - his escape during second world war - how his art helped him in difficult times and strange dove come to sit on hus easel to watch him paint. Interesting read for artists.
The blurb said it reads like a thriller and it is. Apart from escape from invaded Singapore in WW2, his ship being blown out of the water, nearly eaten by sharks, captured by the Japanese...and yes it does tell of a crazy artistic career, like his work or not, it's proving to be a can't put down book. Picked it up in a secondhand bookstore. Lovin' it. A bit self glorious at times and is a wake up for women's equality and emancipation, and shows politically incorrectness of the time. However we have done better since (I think). It's a tine piece I guess so in context it's a fascinating read, especially if you like his work.All in all he's one lucky man and deserves to be credited with the inventiveness of his time and his entrepreneurial adeptness. he is after all a Mid Century design god so I'm biased.
