“An excellent book . . . A lengthy meditation on, and defense of, beauty as a necessary—and perhaps preeminent—transcendent for today”s culture . . . At once autobiography, cultural criticism, and a call to quietly but confidently man the easels in a world that would rather pick up a megaphone and head to the streets.” —Comment magazine

Recently Greg has "come out" in favor of gay authors, but it seems a bit pandering at this time, when such writing is highly popular, even expected. Perhaps Greg had other intentions when writing this book than the sentiments that come across. He has distinguished himself as editor of Image, and many of his choices there were quite intelligent.
