Length: 227 pages
The Basquiat Bounce is a novel that highlights the talent and absurdities of the contemporary art world. A business where Terence Koh's 'Dialectic' (A dried turd wrapped in gold foil) or Mark Kostabi (Who has his assistants paint for him) can command hundreds of thousands of dollars and have solo exhibitions around the globe. Through its cast of eccentric characters, The Basquiat Bounce tries to make sense of this industry in an often hilarious and always entertaining fashion.
Four Boundless Stars
This book was definitely unique from any other book I’ve read. The characters were developed and fit perfectly in the art world; they were quirky and funny. There’s a character for every reader to relate to, love, and hate. A few nice twists and lots of suspense will keep you at edge, but you will also laugh until you cry.
The Basquiat Bounce was a quick read. There were a few editing issues, and some of the dialog was too much for me; overall, I loved it, so I feel strong 4 Boundless stars is a fair rating.
