"Lovingly compiled" Artforum "This hefty volume is 344 pages of smart art takes (Clark Coolidge, ed.) by the largely self-taught painter who, with pal Jackson Pollock, got expelled from L.A.'s Manual Arts High School in 1929." -- Christopher Knight Los Angeles Times, Culture Watch Blog "This is a book of wisdom, not only for artists but for anyone seeking to learn something from art." The Nation "Expansive" San Francisco Bay Guardian "Until now his influence has been through his art rather than his words. This collection gathers together interviews and studio discussions and commits the artist's words to print. -- Alexander Adams Art Newspaper "[Guston's] voice at its effusive best." Jewish Exponent
