Reviews

12 Best Books of 2012 Newsday 10 Favorite Books of 2012 -- Dwight Garner The New York Times Carr's biography is both sympathetic and compendious; it's also a many-angled account of the downtown art world of the 1980s ... [Carr] has seized upon a vivid and peculiarly American story. -- Dwight Garner The New York Times Heartbreaking and unflinchingly honest. Carr has managed to create not only an essential biography but required reading for anyone interested in the '80s art world -- Christopher Bollen Interview A vivid portrait of the artist as a young man ... It's no surprise that Carr writes perceptively about Wojnarowicz's art and the era's 'culture wars.' But she also is exceptionally good at fleshing out her subject as a person ... Carr has resurrected him ... fully and hauntingly. -- Tom Beer Newday A beautifully written, sympathetic, unsentimental portrait of one of the most lastingly influential late 20th century New York artists. -- Chris Kraus Los Angeles Times
