«Whether stashing her poems in a Basquiat-daubed fridge that later sells at Sotheby's or playing with Diego Rivera's granddaughter in Frida Kahlo's bathtub, [Clement's] memories are a perfect synthesis of clarity and mystery»

* Observer *

«Clement has lived a life like no other, and made of it a shimmering mosaic, a masterpiece, which is this book. With an artist's eye and a poet's pen, she has intimately detailed her journey between Mexico City and New York, along with all the magic and fame and ghosts and glitter of the age. Utterly spectacular on every page. I'm thunderstruck. Read it.»

ANDREW SEAN GREER, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of LESS

«[A] perfect time capsule told in fragments of intoxicating prose . . . As with [Widow Basquiat], Clement's account of New York's changing face is hugely compelling»

* Skinny *

«[An] illuminating memoir»

* Harper's Bazaar *

«Clement's vision of the world is like no other's. Beneath her gaze, the "real" is stripped bare to reveal the fantastic that exists in every breath of life. In her prose, the mundane explodes into flame. The Promised Party is a time capsule to all artists henceforth about what matters»

RICK BASS, author of WHY I CAME WEST

«Praise for Widow Basquiat: Engrossing»

* The Times *

«A love story for the ages, Widow Basquiat is an unorthodox dissection of one of modern history's greatest artists, Jean-Michel Basquiat, as recounted by his muse, Suzanne Mallouk. Bound to tug at your heartstrings, this book paints a vivid portrait of the trials and tribulations of an artist like no other.»

DUA LIPA, * Service95 *

«The kind of book that makes you want to take the next flight to New York»

* Big Issue *

«A vivid portrait of Basquiat, powerfully evoking his inventiveness as an artist»

* Independent on Sunday *
