"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).

Review: The Painted Word

Gebruikersrecensie  - Paul Mullen - Goodreads

This is kind of a curio shop of words and their origins. It was fun to meander through the origins of some common place treasures and to be introduced to a few I didn't know. It's like the strange joy of reading the dictionary on a rainy Saturday morning. Volledige recensie lezen
