** I listened to the audio book. I recommend looking up his sketches/paintings as you listen. **

Vincent sure can manipulate Theo in order to keep getting money. The world is certainly a prettier place because both Theo and his parents never practiced Tough Love, and told Vincent to get a friggin job and paint as a hobby, until he can live off his art earnings.

And yet, Vincent thinks he’s exhausted and over worked.

For decades, I’ve been wanting to read the much longer Lust For Life, and now...nope. This book is a great primer and I feel I know the man and his brother.
