The private life and public demons of Pablo Picasso have fueled numerous biographies and films-but this is the first memoir from a family member descended from the iconic painter's first marriage. Picasso's granddaughter Marina witnessed firsthand the humiliation and destruction of her father Paolo, Picasso's son, and the suicide of her brother Pablito. By the time her grandfather died, Marina was filled with such anger that she tried to refuse her share of the inheritance-to free herself of the Picasso legacy. Her story is passionate, painful, and powerful: an unsparing, unflinching account of the brilliant man who once said "to make a dove, you must first wring its neck."
