by John Berger, edited by Tom Overton
A major new book from one of the world’s leading writers and art critics.
"Portraits shows the 88-year-old British art critic at his bristling best. Gathering over 60 years of art criticism, the 500-page book covers a vast historical breadth, from the Chauvet Cave paintings from 30,000 B.C. to contemporary Syrian artist Randa Mdah.” — Wall Street Journal

FOR THE NEW YORKER (OR NEW YORKER AT HEART):
New York, Capital of the 20th Century
by Kenneth Goldsmith
Here is a kaleidoscopic assemblage and poetic history of New York: an unparalleled and original homage to the city, composed entirely of quotations. Drawn from a huge array of sources—histories, memoirs, newspaper articles, novels, government documents, emails—and organized into interpretive categories that reveal the philosophical architecture of the city, Capital is the ne plus ultra of books on the ultimate megalopolis.
