   schema:reviewBody ""For the first time Gilbert & George open up and talk at length to the public. In this extraordinarily revealing book, two of the world's most controversial contemporary artists, who have dubbed themselves 'living sculptures', explain and defend their views and actions. These freewheeling conversations are the fruit of over ten years of friendship with the critic Francois Jonquet, and are distilled from an intensive series of unprecedented frank interviews. Candid and uninhibited, Gilbert & George provide insight into their unique lifestyle and working methods, and give a robust exposition of their views on art, life, sex, money, religion and race. Equally revealing are the many illustrations, which comprise a retrospective of their finest and most powerful work, including new pictures published here for the first time, and also an illuminating selection of new and old documentary photographs."--Jacket." ;
