The first volume of Brian Sewell's scandalous and haunting memoir was met by riotous applause in the press. 'Outsider is a delicious read...I want more - much more,' wrote Rachel Cooke in the Guardian. 'This book records an extraordinary life and will, I hope, soon be continued,' added Lynn Barber in the Sunday Times. Outsider II will certainly not disappoint. With the first instalment ending tantalisingly in 1967 - after exploring Sewell's childhood, adolescence and early adulthood - this next chapter charts his path to becoming, as the Spectator noted, 'Surely the funniest art critic of our time.'

Addicted to art, Brian Sewell has been the art critic of the London Evening Standard since 1984 - the sad end of a once promising career, the Orwell, Hawthornden and other prizes scant consolation to a man who once enjoyed life as a scholar gypsy.Review:
'Filthy, snobbish and tremendously enjoyable' Philip Hensher, Guardian 'He is the gift that keeps on giving' John Walsh, Independent 'There are a few books, only a few, which make one wish to know the author in order to explore his thoughts and personality further. This is such a book - by the outstanding, most outspoken art critic of our time' Daily Mail 'A remarkable memoir' Mail on Sunday 'He never spares others, but he never spares himself either, and we must admire him for that' Sunday Times 'There is constant pleasure in Sewell's prose: the elegance of phrase, the wry humour and the clarity of insight' Independent on Sunday 'He is waspish, indiscreet, comical and utterly outrageous' Sunday Express 'The two volumes of Outsider are a major accomplishment. They provide a compelling account of the razzamatazz of the European art world that will be quoted for centuries. Supremely, though, they are a self-portrait of a prickly, fearless, honest man who provided loving loyalty a outrance' TLS
