New and Forthcoming
An award-winning graphic biography of one of the world’s best-loved artists, Pablo follows Picasso’s artistic career from his origins in penury to the advent of modern art. Taking in the artist’s early life among the bohemians of Montmartre, with all of its scandal and frustration, and his turbulent relationship with his model and lover Fernande, Julie Birmant and Clément Oubrerie show how Picasso’s style developed in response to his friendships and rivalries. An entertaining and beautifully drawn account, this authoritative graphic novel explores the themes and obsessions - among them, sex, death and his great nemesis, Henri Matisse - that drove Picasso to express himself.
Room For Love
Patricia Green is a middle-class, middle-aged romance novelist with writer's block. William Crowney, aka "Cougar", is a teenage runaway who has been surviving life on London's streets as a rent boy. Their lives couldn't be more different. But when, under extraordinary circumstances, William is invited into Patricia's suburban home, they realise they have more in common than loneliness and desperation: both have a desire for love. Through a twisted hell of home truths, William and Patricia slowly begin to understand, even respect, each other. An unlikely friendship forms - one that gives both the strength to carry on.
