"The outrageous energy of the participants and their subsequent notoriety will carry the reader through this uncritical, discursive pop history that begins with CBGB's and its development as the premier club for punk rock... The author then covers various groupings that were to make Manhattan's East Village and neo-expressionism buzzwords of the '80s: Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kenny Scharf and Keith Haring receive extensive coverage, as well as performance artists like Ann Magnuson and "personalities" such as Patti Astor. The book culminates with the explosion of galleries in the East Village and its impact on the New York art marketplace."
