? by Charles Saatchi

Reading Saatchi’s collection of answers to questions posed by journalists, critics, fans and general members of the public reminded me a lot of eating blue veined cheese – biting, sharp, witty and often surprising (for both good and unpleasant reasons). The questions posed reflected a general want to know what exactly has made Saatchi “the most influential art collector of our time,” however his responses make it obvious that he’d much rather talk about his all time favourite Hollywood leading ladies; his go-kart career and his adoration for Nigella Lawson (his wife and renowned chef) –  a both cheeky and refreshing viewpoint however at times a little frustrating. Overall I found Saatchi’s anecdotes, like a ripe blue veined cheese, nonetheless highly entertaining and imagine that they would make great conversation starters at a dinner party.
