Marie-ThErEse Walter was seventeen when she met Picasso. He was forty-six. These poems - as simple and direct as quick sketches - use her voice to tell the story of the relationship with Picasso and what it meant to her from its first beginnings, until the day on which she took her own life, three years after his death.The poems illuminate his love for a woman who was, as John Berger says, 'the sexually most important affair of his life'; they also, perhaps, make sense of Marie-ThErEse's love for him.Jeff Fisher's drawings animate the vivid voice of Marie-ThErEse, created with great immediacy by Julia Blackburn.
