This is one of the most interesting and well written books I have ever read. I have a degree in English and thought my vocabulary was good. There were a few words I had never seen before - -but it's well worth the time to read and I found it so interesting I didn't want to put it down. My book club read it and afterward, 4 of us made the trip to Ocean Springs to visit the museum and gallery. I came home with one of Walter Anderson's prints to be painted by niece who is an artist. It's a great read!

Book was in excellent condition. I’m visual, so I appreciated the photos included as well as Walter’s pencil illustrations that went along with the story each chapter. What an amazing read; I couldn’t put it down. She has many direct quotes which I found surprising. I wonder if she has a wonderful memory, some of the quotes were paraphrased, or she truly journaled much of her time. Her writing was another surprise- I soaked it up like a sponge! Agnes was brilliant in her own right. I’m a therapist so I’m interested in Walter’s diagnosis. I wish there was more his doctors could have done for him to help him function as a father and husband. Most definitely a story of tragedy, genius, and wonder.

Sissy, the wife of Walter Anderson, is a good writer who catches the essence of Bob as only she could know.

For anyone interested in the works of Walter Inglis Anderson, this book is a must read. His wife has written a beautiful, riveting, and sometimes heart breaking account of their life together. You will have a hard time putting it down.

Incredible biography by the wife of a well known Mississippi artist who lived very differently from others….Would have given it a 5 rating but for the fact that it was disturbing to learn of the mental anguish suffered by Andersen and those who tried to love him.
Had Walter Anderson been a dentist, plumber, mailman, veterinarian or anything but an artist, his insanity and abuse would have been less tolerated. Because he was an artist, both a creative and good one, his family and friends explained away his abusive, insane behavior. They did get him professional help but this always came after he nearly killed one or another of them.

This is not an uncommon attitude; creative people seem often to get passes for unacceptable behavior. For sure, mental illness is real and it must be dealt with; it is so difficult for those involved. In this case a woman and innocent children lived under the constant threat of violence and abandonment.

While I do not have Walter Anderson's talents I do paint and write; I fully understand and appreciate how he saw the world. This attitude of excusing unacceptable behavior distresses me and while reading the book I was constantly alternating between angry and sad.

This book, well written and informative, is a book not only about the artist dealing with his many personal demons but a book about his abused wife, Sissy Anderson. This abuse should have come as no surprise; Walter, aka Bob, was abusive before the couple married. Sissy tells in her own words the many stories of abuse followed by Walter/Bob's wild apologies, pleadings and pronouncements of great love.

I enjoyed reading this book, but the more I read, the more I wondered just how much could the extremely forgiving Sissy put up with. Clearly she had great strength of mind and body. She was essentially a single mother in a time when that was rare. She tried to keep the children out of harm's way and likely had no examples of how to do that.

I am sure this book is always read as a book about art and an artist but it is equally a book about spousal abuse and should have a place with books on that topic.
