The Painted Word exposes the myths and men of modern art. From the fuliginous flatness of the fifties to the pop op-minimal sixties, right on through the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't seventies, Tom Wolfe debunks the great American myth of modern art in an incandescent, hilarious and devastating blast.

"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,The Painted Word, 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. -Judson Hand, NEW YORK SUNDAY NEWS
