Synopsis

Orlando Whitfield and Inigo Philbrick spent fifteen years together as successful international art dealers. However, as this sparkling memoir reveals, that partnership ended when Inigo was accused of a fraud that uncovered an art world steeped in greet, ambition and madness.

Synopsis

Deception is a fine art.

When Orlando Whitfield first meets Inigo Philbrick, they are students dreaming of dealing art for a living. Their friendship lasts for fifteen years until one day, Inigo - by then the most successful dealer of his generation - disappears, accused of a fraud so gigantic and audacious it rocks the art world to its core.

A sparklingly sharp memoir of greed, ambition and madness, All That Glitters will take you to the heart of the contemporary art world, a place wilder and wealthier than you could ever imagine.
