For the first time ever, fans and Western art enthusiasts can now experience the art and life of Will "Sonny" Sampson in a beautiful coffee table book, BEYOND CUCKOO'S NEST - THE ART AND LIFE OF WILLIAM SAMPSON, JR. With photographs of more than 50 paintings and over 70 sketches, the originals of which are in private collections, this poignant book takes the reader on a rare and tender journey, from the three year old boy drawing in the dirt to the 6' 5" Indian actor whose talent and charm influenced many. "Painting is my life. I am first, last and always a painter." Indeed, Will Sampson claimed that acting supported his painting habit. Written and compiled by his personal assistant, Zoe Escobar, the book was a long time in the making. "After Sonny's passing, I boxed up all the research material and sent it to a friend for safekeeping ... where it languished for nearly twenty-five years." Personal stories told by Will, interviews with his family, and Zoe's own personal experiences, together with rare photographs of both art and artist, combine in over 200 glossy pages to create an extraordinary collector's item.
