The Book of Joys is a collection of six stories by John Saul, one of which, 'Art: a biography', is
published for the first time. It also features images by the artist Albert Irvin (1922–2015).

The book is part of a series of 'collaborations' between writers and artists. 

Playful with fictional forms and ideas, these six pieces find joy in its many guises – found,
mislaid, brushed against and re-encountered. Enjoyment of art itself, evident in the
exuberance of Albert Irvin’s work, is a thread running through the book.
