Peppiatt met Bacon in the Summer of 1963 – an encounter which was to spark a transformative and inspiring friendship for them both. In this new book on the artist, Francis Bacon in Your Blood, Peppiatt delves deeper than ever before to gift the reader with stories of their time together. They range from the purposefully indiscreet, the hilariously revelatory and the poignantly tragic.

This is a book brimming with friendship, debauchery and tales from the artistic underworld of this exciting time in history. A beautiful and enchanting book by an enigmatic writer who, being such an expert on Bacon, is a joy to hear speak on the subject.
