A funny, angry and sharp book about the world of art in general and Thomas Hoving and his Metropolitan Museum of Art. Traces the rise and fall of those heroes and villains, dealers and directors, curators and patrons, who wield cultural power, or at least think they do. He shows that it is both money and prestige which are at stake, and underscores the fact that many people--artists, benefactors, and public alike--are exploited by a handful of men who convert public and professional power to private ends.
