Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0486218759, Paperback)

Described by Whistler himself as a highly entertaining account of personal revenges, this work is filled with the deadly sarcasm and stinging remarks of one of the wittiest men of the 19th century. The great artist deflates Wilde, Ruskin, Swinburne, and inane critics and discusses the aesthetics of the Impressionist.
