Hickey is such a seductive writer that it took me years to figure out he's a social theorist masquerading as an art critic.

As criticism, though, the Liberace piece is amazing.

Some of Hickey's best crit remains locked away in back issues of Art issues.--the piece on the Carpenters' "Goodbye to Love," for example. Someone needs to collect the uncollected.
