Praise

Original, fascinating, personal, often brilliant, combative—Arthur C. Danto, Artforum

This is critical theory grounded in the viscera and in the libido. A minimum of academic jargon, a satisfying helping of lovely description, a surprising amount of good dirty sex, not to mention an all-star cast of characters—Greenberg, Pollock, Woolf, Warhol, Deleuze, Sartre, Artaud, Madonna, and Jung productively inhabit these pages—which add up to nothing less than a persuasive rewriting of 20th-century culture.
