The first biography of one of the finest and most bohemian British poets of the twentieth century. Eliot wrote of his "genius". Yeats thought him the most interesting poet of his generation. Dylan Thomas envied his power over women. This biography of George Barker (1913-91) offers both a portrait of a talented, tormented and irresistibly entertaining man, and a who's who of the British literary world in the 20th century.
