Description

The two-time PEN/Faulkner Award finalist and author of Mulligan Stew paints a “clever parodic take on the contemporary art world” (Publishers Weekly).
 
How often have you been subjected to supposed artists, art critics, or works of “art” that left you wondering what the word even means? And just who the hell are these pseudo-cool people who think they know what you should like better than you?
 
In this bitingly satiric, imaginative tour of gallery, museum and performance art exhibitions, Gilbert Sorrentino brilliantly and mercilessly skewers the precious pretensions of the contemporary art world and its flailing attempts at maintaining relevance in a society whose attentions have strayed to the immediacy of pop culture.
 
With precise comedic timing and an eye toward lascivious detail, Sorrentino is the perfect guide through this hilariously absurd and “deliciously funny” world (Booklist).
