I was utterly engrossed from the first page. His prose is elegant and clear and his analysis of the ideas that motivate artists is intelligent and believable. Even when I didn't agree with him (things like the "AIDS quilt") I loved reading it.
I am really enjoying this-- going through global art history, but recent Western art history in particular, actively engaging the idea that "art and homosexuality" is a redundant phrase.
a little heavy handed but overall informative

Man, this thing is slow. So hard to get through, but I'm trying.
mind-boggling and interesting.. light-reading reference.
