A sparkling, engrossing personal and political biography rather than a technical analysis. Turner was an iconoclast, a self-promoter, an innovator; many thought him a genius, others a madman. Well-known, commercially successful, his secret personal life was tumultuous and distressing. With 51 illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Louise Jones
