In Tom Wolfe's hands, the strange saga of American architecture in the 20th century makes for both high comedy and intellectual excitement. This is his sequel to The Painted Word, the book that caused such a furor in the art world five years before. Once again Wolfe shows how social and intellectual fashions have determined aesthetic form in our time and how willingly the creators have abandoned personal vision and originality in order to work a la mode.

    " This is essentially the same book as "The Painted Word" - except instead of lampooning (so delicately though, he wields his lampoon - a tool I imagine to look like a harpoon - as deftly as a needle, at points, letting the subject skewer itself) modern art, he's piercing the same ridiculously, reflexively anti-bourgeois habits of modern architecture. That's pretty much Wolfe's nonfiction career, come to think of in: unmasking the thoughtless anti-bourgeois posing of various sub-countercultures. Tiring? But he does it so well... "

    " This book made me realize Tom Wolfe knows nothing about architecture or art. "

    " Last read this book when I was in Art History. Now that I am in Preservation I wonder if I will look at if differently. "

    " Buku yang sangat menarik. Tom Wolfe dengan lihai menceritakan kepada kita tentang transisi dari era klasik, modern hingga postmodern. "
