THE PAINTED WORD
"America's nerviest journalist" ("Newsweek") trains his satirical eye on Modern Art in this "masterpiece" ("The Washington Post") Wolfe's style has never been more dazzling, his wit never more keen. He addresses the scope of Modern Art, from its founding days as Abstract Expressionism through its transformations to Pop, Op, Minimal, and Conceptual. This is Tom Wolfe "at his most clever, amusing, and irreverent" ("San Francisco Chronicle").
Tom Wolfe is the author of a dozen books, among them such contemporary classics as "The Bonfire of the Vanities, The Right Stuff," and "I Am Charlotte Simmons." He lives in New York City.
