This 288-page, ‘autobiographicatalogue’ is Fudakowski’s elaborate yet fragmented answer to an ex-boyfriend who asked: “So you call yourself an artist?” In The Roll of The Artist – Volume One the author unfolds herself with personal stories and anecdotes, against a backdrop of the lives and trials of artists who have made a deep impression on her. The book weaves together a wide-ranging and at times awkwardly honest account of the loves and labours of an emerging artist.
