The Painted Word

Celebrity author vs. modern art. Tom Wolfe had already been a famous novelist for years by the time The Painted Word was published in 1975, and he instantly became a notorious art critic. From Andy Warhol and Jackson Pollock to uber-critic Clement Greenberg, Wolfe gleefully pulled the carpet out from under everyone and everything he deemed pretentious. Wolfe quickly became Public Enemy Number One in the modern art world, of course, and as powerful as The Painted Word is as an art book, it's also a fascinating period piece made all the more interested by imagining how many people hated him for it.
