This critic is a joy to read, really has opinions not always following the mainstream. That's what makes it so interesting. I read his first book "Seeing Out Loud" and enjoyed that as well. He gives great insight to the New York scene and its artists and museums, what works and what doesn't. You don't have to agree with him, but you will enjoy his funny, sarcastic point of view.

"Seeing Out Louder" is a LOL reading experience that proves in its 436 pages that if you aren't having fun in the art world, you're doing it wrong. Jerry Saltz, the self-described "Jewish cowboy" as the book's author, is doing it right.
With references as wide and varied as Homer Simpson and Plato, Jerry sets the standard for art criticism in America every time he puts pen to paper.
Culled from his weekly columns at The Village Voice and New York Magazine (his current job) from 2003 to 2009, Saltz's writing style is admittedly "dense" as he tries to cram the "maximum amount of information in a minimum amount of space." But as Entertainment Weekly said about his TV commentary on the new Bravo show "Work of Art," Jerry's artspeak is succinct and accessible.
That is not to say that this TV personality won't frequently send you packing to the Google images page of your iPhone as often as Martin Amis sends readers packing to their OEDs. After all, Mr. Saltz has remembered more about art than most people will ever forget.
The road to the top, from truck drivin' cowboy to two-time Pulitzer Prize-nominated author, involves personally viewing 30-40 shows in New York City every week and at least 40 visits a year to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Since the 1980s, when Jerry first started reviewing art, he has probably seen as much work in person as anyone, so much art that he even has fantasies about making love in a museum.
Pop culture references abound, lightening the load of million dollar, brand name art, with Jerry sometimes threatening to get "mid-evil" on someone, a Pulp Fiction reference. Saltz writes art criticism the way J.D.
