Michael Lawrence was born in Los Angeles in 1943, the son of film star Marc Lawrence and screenwriter, poet and novelist Fanya Foss. After he was awarded the Huntington Hartford Fellowship, his life’s pursuits were set as an artist and a writer. His art is now exhibited in private collections across the globe, including those owned by Oliver Stone and LACMA, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Roy Lichtenstein described his artwork as “vibrant, joyous and colourful”. His fine, poetic words and funny stories are destined to become equally so, in this coming of age tale like no other.
