The book Erik Satie (1866 - 1925) loved animals, children and his art. He disliked women and money-making. Though he was often dismissed as a charlatan and publicity seeker, the story of his life is ultimately one of self-sacrifice to the highest ideals. Harding's witty and sensitive portrait of this very private, self-contained figure is at once affectionate yet clear-eyed. The wounding epigrams, the ultra-sensitive reactions and the frequent bouts of alarming rage were the signs of a man who never really grew up, whose character remained innocent and childlike in a world of perplexing harshness. Yet the stubborn eccentricity hid a unique musical intelligence. Harding portrays Satie in relation to his friends - Montmartre Bohemians of la Belle Epoque, the impassive humorist Alphonse Allais, the mountebank "high-priest" Péladan, that strange inhabitant of the Paris night Léon-Paul Fargue, and Debussy and Ravel, with whom the volatile Satie conducted uneasy friendships. Others who play their part in the tragi-comic tale include Cocteau, Stravinsky and Diaghilev.
