I don't know how I hadn't read this book until now; thank you, Lori Judge of Judge Realty. Published in 2008, the seven sections entertain and inform, but it's the author, an art historian and sociologist first, who is the true artist. Her keen and quiet sense of humor sneaks around corners and, ahha!, you receive her message. Sarah Thornton's access to the here, now and WHO is so perfect it might be labelled fiction. But it's not. For anybody remotely interested in art at any level, I highly recommend this page turner.
