Marcel Duchamp doesn't exactly write regular letters like "Dear so-so, enjoying Nyc, wish you were here. love, Marcel."

No, here you see how his genius mind works and it's a fascinating book for that reason alone. Duchamp I think is the last of the great artists. Others are fantastic but he was truly an original and truly a great artist.
