'Bryan's writing pops and zings like a Basquiat painting - and reminds us why truly great artists are immortal.' - NOEL FIELDING 'Bright Stars is a compelling reflection on the concept of legacy. Bryan's wide ranging assessment of artists we lost too soon proves that longevity in art is rewarded to the stars that burn the brightest, however fleeting their lives and careers.' - MARIA BALSHAW, DIRECTOR OF TATE 'Kate Bryan marshalls a wealth of fascinating detail about artists's lives cut sadly short ... and in sprightly prose brings their work vividly to life.' - JOAN BAKEWELL
