Man of Montmartre

Man of Montmartre - A novel based on the life of Maurice Utrillo by Stephen Longstreet and Ethel Longstreet.
This biographical novel about Maurice Utrillo, half mad genius, alcoholic and one of the greatest painters of the century, is set against the background of Paris from the 1880's to the 1920's. Through the crooked streets of Montmartre which he was to immortalize, wanders Maurice, the illegitimate child of artist and model Suzanne Valadon; a teen-age drunkard who took up painting as work therapy; the friend of Modigliani and finally awarded the Legion of Honour.
