At last an incredibly readable book about the London art world. For every long word there are dozens of short ones. It's a map of the mind, a journey to the heart of darkness, a step in a puddle, a ride on a tour boat, a week in traction. Learn lots of things and be entertained as well. From the anguished screaming tortured canvases of Francis Bacon to the witty ironic twirling sliced farmyard animals of Damien Hirst, let Matthew Collings take you by the hand and gently guide you through art's Yellow Pages.

From Library Journal:

This unusual volumeApart art history, part journalism, and part diaryAoffers a crash course on the Pop Art scene in London from roughly the Sixties onward and does so with intelligence and humor. Collings has spent his life in this artistic environment, and he writes with an insider's ease. In an engaging mix of anecdote, critique, and discussion, he presents a somewhat wild potpourri of the lives, unusual habits, and creations of such individuals as Damien Hirst, John Stezaker, R.B. Kitaj, and David Hockney, to name only a very few. Along the way he takes a look at various trends from Shock Art to Pop to the School of London, including the philosophies of each as well as a descriptive sampling of the works of their various adherents. Lavish illustrations range from the beautiful to the strange to the shocking. Don't let the breezy tone fool youAthis book is filled with a wealth of solid information. Recommended for all contemporary art collections.ACarol J. Binkowski, Bloomfield, NJ
