Nick Ryder is what's known as a shade, the lowest form of life in the kingdom of Art, a gallery assistant. At least until he offers a million dollars worth of accidental advice to a famous collector. His resulting climb to notoriety takes him through the moral labyrinth of the art business, where he must confront his estranged father, a famous painter and possible forger, his old boss whose only redeeming quality is the fact that he lies only nine out of ten times, and a former member of Warhol's ring who owns the painting everyone wants.
"Gold Marilyn" is the outrageous fable of what happens when you get what you wish for, as Skidmore takes the reader on a savvy and surreal trip through the world of art, painting with words in the bold and sure strokes of someone who has been there--and lived to write about it.
