A Review of Picasso: My Grandfather

Posted by Scott Holstad on September 19, 2012

Picasso, My GrandfatherPicasso, My Grandfather by Marina Picasso

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I got through 30 pages and then just couldn’t finish this book. It’s dreadful. Marina Picasso’s hatred of and contempt for her grandfather knows no bounds. It’s really appalling. And what did Picasso do to gain her enmity? He was insulting. Yeah, that makes him a “monster” according to the Vancouver Sun on the front cover of the book. Her father, his son, had to work for him as a chauffeur. Well, everyone has choices in life. He chose to work for his dad and therefore had to get paid by him, which the family found humiliating. BFD. I felt no pity for this woman, and she so desperately wants to get pity from the reader. I couldn’t finish it. It was too pathetic. She needs to go to additional therapy, over the 14 years she went, and get the hell over it. Get a life Marina!
