Advance Praise for The Painter's Friend:
"I loved it. Cunnell's writing has an unforgettable visual and moral clarity."
—Melissa Harrison, author of All Among the Barley
"Cunnell's prose is elegantly punchy in his novel about a working class artist . . . The valour of his fight is revealed in a story of what can happen when truth is considered idealism and collides with the predatory designs of a property developer. A fine book."
—John Healy, author of The Grass Arena
"His finest and most important work to date."
—Cathi Unsworth, author of Weirdo
What a fine book The Painter's Friend is. At times, a beautiful meditation, at other times the prose ripples with tension and foreboding. Howard Cunnell is a wonderful writer who should be read by everyone.
—Sarah Winman, author of Still Life
Howard Cunnell’s acclaimed memoir Fathers and Sons was described as ‘a unique, and uniquely beautiful book’ (Financial Times); it explores his experiences as a fatherless man raising a transgender son. He is the editor of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road – The Original Scroll, which the New York Times called ‘the living version for our time.’ Cunnell’s third novel, The Painter’s Friend, is published by Picador.
