If you have ever looked at a Pollock, Rauschenberg, Warhol, etc. and wondered what the fuss was all about, this book is a must-read. This is no low-brow, philistine, know-nothing critique of "modern art." On the contrary, it is a critique by a decidedly high-brow intellectual who "gets" the theory behind modern art, and, as a gifted writer, is able to explain it to the masses (God forbid!). Art snobs will object vehemently, but will be hard pressed to respond to Tom Wolfe's exposé of the irrational rationalizations at the core of the elite art scene.
