In Adventure Everywhere author and DJ legend Dave Haslam takes us to hedonistic 1900s Paris, a city steeped in music, art, sex, drugs and revolutionary new ideas. Picasso’s relationships – and debts – to poets and other artists are described; his misogyny is addressed; and no bar, cabaret club or dance hall is left unvisited in this vivid and intriguing account of how significant nightlife was in Picasso’s Paris, and how central in his art. Dave is joined by journalist Siân Pattenden.
Dave Haslam is a writer, broadcaster and legendary Haçienda DJ. He has written for the New Musical Express, The Guardian, the London Review of Books, and The Times, and has published five books, as well as his Confingo art books, of which Adventure Everywhere is seventh in the series.
