This book follows artist Sarah Lucas and her boyfriend, poet Olivier Garbay, through the summer of 2007 in this unusual alphabet book, one that is not intended for children.

Sarah Lucas was born in Holloway, London, 1962, and studied at Goldsmith’s College. One of the leading figures in the generation of Young British Artists who emerged during the 1990s, she has gained an international reputation for provocative works that frequently employ coarse visual puns and a defiant, bawdy humor. Her works span the media of photography, collage and found objects. Sarah Lucas lives in Suffolk, England, and works in London. She is represented by Sadie Coles HQ, London, Gladstone Gallery, New York, and CFA Berlin.
