Review

A compelling read about the high weirdness that prevails in the contemporary art market, with more facts and figures than you can shake a Warhol at. Like the rest of the economy, the art market took a serious nosedive in 2008; however, artists and galleries and auction houses are nothing if not resourceful, and the competition is always keen. This is Thompson’s second book on the subject — the first was The $12 Million Stuffed Shark — and I figure there will be more than enough stories to tell should he decide to write a third.
