Yes – a really well put together biography of a poet, novelist, playwright, aviator, rapist, politician, soldier, cruel, sex-obsessed monster of a man. Fascinating and bewildering. “A greyhound or a thorough-bred horse, Ida Rubenstein’s legs, the body of an Ardito fording the Piave, the form and structure of my highly polished cranium – these are the most beautiful phenomena in the world”
