Dear M: Letters from a Gentleman of Excess
Until 1983 Jack Pollock was the owner of the Pollock Gallery in Toronto, where he exhibited new Canadian artists. Then, abruptly, he lost both his business and his health. A broken man, he retreated to the south of France, expecting to die. These letters provide an assessment of his life. They are in the form of letters, as outrageous and courageous as the man who wrote them, written to "M", a psychiatrist he had consulted briefly before his departure, in which he confides his deepest feelings. They speak of his daily life, his past, of religion and of the power of sexuality. Pollock now lives in Toronto again, where he paints and teaches.
