In ROSES AND BUCKSHOT he tosses brush, palette and caution to the winds. In giving you his autobiography (profusely illustrated, of course) he writes candidly of the hundreds of famous people he has known and of his numerous love affairs and hate-affairs. Mr. Flagg is a vehement man!Give him alphabet soup, a friend has said, and he only eats the exclamation points! Rigorously true to his views he lets the heads roll where they may. but should you find any undue modesty in these chapters, you may be sure that Mr. Flagg did not intend it.Across the canvas of his fifty-odd years as an artist (he sold his first drawings at 14) moves an almost unbelievable parade of presidents, statesmen, stage celebrities, not to mention several of his models who rose to Hollywood stardom--Norma Shearer, for instance.[...]Generally recognized as the stormy Dean of the popular artists of our times, he has been a leader in the revolt against Victorianism.It is probably an awareness of this which prompted his mother to sign--Yes, Monty was a nice boy before he went to the Art Students League.Dip into this book any place and youll want to stay--especially if you like a dash of vinegar with your nostalgia.[~From the book jacket]
