One thought on “Episode 216: WhiteWalls & The Return of the Book Review”

  1. Paul Klein says:

    Any ‘decent’ book on art is ‘good,” but the Emma Dial book, though a pleasant read, was thoroughly mediocre, written by someone with a limited view of the art world. Her knowledge is sufficiently incomplete as to compromise the book.

    Everything is mundane and shallow – even the sex scenes. To be a good artist or a good writer one needs life experiences. Ms. Peale was not prepared to write this book.

    Not many art books get me roaring with laughter or aghast responses, but Richard Polsky’s newest work, though not a novel, (I Sold Andy Warhol Too Soon) is a much better read than Emma Dial.

    And sitting on the counter waiting for me to pick up is book with the most amazing reviews I’ve ever seen; Provenance.
