Journalist, writer, interviewer and memoirist Lynn Barber claims no skill in art herself but loves hanging out with artists - and has devoted much of her career to interviewing them. Beautifully illustrated and fizzing with stories from her forays into the world of art, A Little Art Education documents an enduring passion, and the friendships, feuds, and lessons-learnt from a life spent in pursuit of it.

From the trials and tribulations of being a juror for the 2006 Turner Prize to dining at the Hotel Meurice with Salvador Dali's ocelot, and her enduring friendships with David Hockney and Tracey Emin, this beautifully illustrated book documents Lynn's unusual and inspiring journey from curious outsider to finding her place among some of the most admired artists of the last hundred years.

Following the huge success of her memoir An Education, adapted into an Oscar-nominated film starring Carey Mulligan in 2009, A Little Art Education recalls the more recent chapters in Lynn Barber's fascinating life, fizzing with funny, insightful, and occasionally shocking stories from the epicentre of the art world and the great figures who inhabit it.
