Tristram Hillier was one of England's foremost painters. Leda and the Goose, his autobiography proves that he is also a writer. It is the story of a man who has led an unusual and intersting life, much of it in remote and little-known places. It is a vivid and entertaining picture that emerges of a bohemian life spent mostly on the Continent between two wars, culminating in a happy marriage to Leda. It is of a carefree existence which was to end in a nightmare dash across France an hour or so in front of the invading Germans, He has a rich story to tell and shows himself in this book to be a first class raconteur and a born writer.
