About the Author
"The most engrossing book I’ve read in an age...It offers a back-room view of Jarman’s career as well as his musings on art and film...Jarman is the sort of troublemaking visionary who one day may be compared with Blake." —Time Out London"Moving, poetic, inspirational." —New Musical Express"The rich, raw, kaleidoscopic finale of a personal and artistic statement." —Kirkus"Derek Jarman was a genius who, like the gay artists he admired, not only lived dangerously (that being queer) but created dangerous art. In this time when artistic cowardice (that being marketability) reigns, one would do well to read Kicking the Pricks." —Lambda Book Report
