Sarah Thornton nails so many aspects of the art world, it's almost as if she's an insider. This is a book I think many professional artists would love to force their non-art world friends and family to read, because it gives such a realistic view of how several layers of the art world work. However - the chapter on the graduate student critic is cringingly not like any upper level student crit I've suffered through (seems very undergrad and horrifyingly cliche) and the chapter devoted to "The Studio Visit" is about an art superstar (Mirakami) so the reality there is for one extremely tiny dot in the artist landscape - wish she had written more about other artist studio visits too.
