The very wonderful Brian Sewell never disappoints and this engrossing read deals with his early life. Never one not to speak his mind this book is frank and honestly refreshing in the stories from his childhood, to working at Christies Auction House in London. I loved the way dear Brian has the most inspiring way of capturing life in Middle-England and the hypocrisy and snobbery of the art market world. A truly, savagely honest autobiography

—Staff review of Outsider by Brian Sewell from Waterstones, Lancaster. 

Brian Sewell returns in fine form in this the second part of his autobiography. Irresistible in its wit and detail we follow Brian on his life journey, having resigned from auction house Christies to his short stint at becoming an art dealer, to his final status of art critic and surely a national treasure
