In an incredible series of letters to his brother, artist Vincent van Gogh discusses life, art, religion, and philosophy. He also records the daily comings and goings of his life, first as a teacher and missionary and then as a painter. They form an intimate autobiography. Clive Chafer does a solid job narrating the work, giving emotion to the artist’s angst and joys, especially in his discussion of art. Chafer adopts a more even tone for the more mundane passages. The book, as a whole, can be a little tedious at times as we follow the author literally day by day—to the market, to a school, or on a ramble in the countryside.
