Product description


This biography is as strange and haunting as Leonora Carrington's surrealist paintings (Lynn Barber Sunday Times)

The Surreal Life of Leonora Carrington could easily have run to at least a hundred or so extra pages without exhausting its subject . . . a charming and at times inspirational book (Literary Review)

An intimate portrait of this wild child of surrealism and tells her fascinating story as recounted during a series of meetings in the later stages of her life (Tate etc.)

A funny, touching account of Joanna Moorhead 's unexpected friendship with the wildly imaginative painter and writer who happened to be her long-lost cousin . . . She is lucky to have found such a memorialist. (Peter Conrad Obesrver)

Book Description

A personal biography of Leonora Carrington, the debutante who ran away to Mexico and became one of the world's most significant surrealist artists.
