About this title


Book by Finster, Howard

From Library Journal:

Finster has created a religiously inspired four-and-a-half-acre environment known as Paradise Garden in Georgia. Responding to visions and voices, he passionately expresses his devotion to his God by covering every conceivable surface on the site with streams of words and biblical scenes. He also retells his life's story in various versions to anyone who will listen. Both Patterson and Turner have created a portrait of Finster in his own words and further provide a photographic tour of his idiosyncratic work. After offering an introductory chapter, Patterson organizes Finster's stream-of-consciousness sermon-monologs in a coherent and chronological manner. Turner, who has interviewed the artist as well as his family and friends, writes about Finster's art, describes his fame, offers reactions to his mission and his creations, and supplies an extensive bibliography. While both titles will be sought by those interested in 20th-century folk art, Turner's book offers insights into the visionary experiences and manifestations of this self-proclaimed "Stranger from Another World."-- Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.
