In this short book, Tom Wolfe turns his satirical attention to the contemporary art world of the 1970s. Critiquing both artists like Jackson Pollock and art theorists like Clement Greenberg and Harold Rosenberg, "The Painted Word" carries you through the greatest art scenes in 1975 New York City. The New York Sunday News says, "If you have ever stared uncomprehendingly at an abstract painting that admired critics have said you ought to dig, take heart. Tom Wolfe, in a scathing new satire, is on your side... Don't miss it. It may enrage you. It may confirm your darkest suspicions about modern art. In any case, it will amuse you."
