This is a most unusual study of the life of exceptional visual artist, Aubrey Beardsley. The book does not give a picture-book chronology of Aubrey's achievements as an artist. It studies his relationship with his mother and sister, his complicated lifestyle, his affliction with tuberculosis, deviant fascination with transvestism and how the use of psychedelic drugs possibly inspired his work.
