Read in December, 2009

Fantastic, almost anthropological/ethnographic look at the contemporary art market and how it operates, who drives it, and why it is the way it is. Very much in the style of Peter Watson's look at Sotheby's. For an outsider to be able to slip into this often exclusive world and provide insight for those of us who will never penetrate it, yet remain fascinated by it, is quite the achievement.
