Nat Tate

William Boyd published a fictional biography of Nat Tate presenting it as a real biography. Boyd and his co-conspirators set about convincing the New York glitterati that the reputation of this influential abstract expressionist needed to be re-evaluated.

David Bowie held a launch party on April Fool’s Day, 1998, and read extracts from the book, while Richardson talked about Tate’s friendships with Picasso and Braque.
