From American National Biography.

Very biographical novel about the famous artist. Stone gives our hero a tepid and unconvincing heterosexual unhappy love affair. Mostly, when not checking off the major artworks, the novel is about MA's lifelong struggle with authority figures, and manages to have prctically no details about sculpture. The movie was better, as it had the enliving prescence of Rex Harrison.

Buen libro, en su mayoría entretenido, pero para mi fue poco emotivo, nada que ver con el “Anhelo de Vivir”. En el libro “Anhelo de Vivir” siento que el autor trabajo mas en los diálogos y pensamientos de los personajes, en la esencia de los personajes, fueron un poco mas modernizados (por así decirlo), o probable me identifique mas en algunas ocasiones.

"Прага да жыцця", 1934, Ірвінг Стоўн
- біяграфія фанцузскага мастака 🧑🏼‍🎨 галандскага паходжаня Вінцента ван Гога. Каб напісць кнгігу аўтар "прайшоў пешкі па поўдні Францыі, жыў у псіхіятрычным шпіталі, куды змясцілі Ван Гога, і, нарэшце, спаў у ты жа самым пакою і на тым жа ложку ў маленькай гасцініцы ў Аверы ў гадавіну яго смерці"… Асноўная крыніца атрымання інфармацыі для кнігі бала перапіска 📝 ван Гога з братам Тэо, з тым, хто адзіны верыў у выключнасць і геніальнасць мастака.
Усе дыялогі вымысел. Але Стоўн дакладна апісаў усе ключавыя здарэння ў жыцці генія: ранія годы, адносіны з жанчынамі, перажыванні з-за крытыкі яго талента, псіхічныя растройствы.
Гэта раман аб нястомным пераследу сваёй мэты.
Варта прачытаць тым, хто цікавіцца біяграфіямі знакамітасцяў, а таксама, раман дадасць матывацыі творчым людзям.
