Never assume all art criticism is the next best thing to sleeping pills. Originally published in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner and the Los Angeles Times, these short essay/reviews can make for a late evening of inspired learning. Award-winning critic Knight writes directly yet insightfully. He does an excellent job of etching out the careers of numerous artists?both living and dead?with an erudite art-historical eye that is also capable of finding immediate social contexts that we all can understand. Resisting the temptation to stop there, Knight asks the reader to think, most often by bringing in simple observations not necessarily bound to current theory. His writings possess a fluency of thought and language that does more than enhance; it harnesses appreciation for art production from Manet to Kruger, from Rousseau to Golub. Both the scholar and the lay reader can get much from this book, but it fits best in academic and larger public library art collections.?Susan M. Olcott, Columbus Metropolitan Lib., Ohio
