But hearing about how he was stonee tormented at the end, softened my heart to him. Now how much of this is actually true? Stone’s main source for Lust for Life, as noted in the afterword, were Van Gogh’s letters to his brother Theo.

There was also an interesting part in the book where he was living in Paris and all these other artists were there also. I haven’t read any of Stone’s other novels so don’t know if he always writes this way or if sone adopted this style as one that suited Van Gogh’s life.
