Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
abstractions and distractions.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Thomas Hart Benton, Nan Goldin, Amy Vitale, Weldon Kees, Wright Morris, Nadav Kander, Robert Polidori (and so many more!)
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
