The Death of Francis Bacon, by Max Porter

Staff Pick

 

Porter's novella--or, like Lanny, and Grief is the Thing with Feathers, what might better be called a haunting book-length prose poem--enters the mind of its eponymous protagonist during the painter's last days in Madrid. This idiosyncratic writer has created a work of intense imagery and poetic delirium that evokes Bacon's deathbed struggle as he comes to terms with the life and legacy he is about to leave.
