From the Inside Flap
Critic, novelist and cultural voyeur Michael Bracewell is not a writer who's easy to classify. Born in 1958, a veteran of the British punk scene, he is a shockingly wide-ranging intellect whose influences range from Oscar Wilde to Patti Smith to electronic music artist Goldie. One of the most influential commentators on modern and contemporary art, a regular contributor to Frieze since its inception, Bracewell also has won awards for fashion writing.
In an engaging collection from the outstanding British art publisher Ridinghouse, Bracewell explores connections between the visual arts, pop music, modern iconography and various sub-cultures. These finely crafted essays appraise the vision and ideas of individual artists and the relation of their work to its broader cultural context. Bracewell has written extensively on artists including Gilbert & George, Richard Hamilton, Bridget Riley, Wolfgang Tillmans, Anish Kapoor, Keith Coventry, John Stezaker, Glenn Brown and Damien Hirst.
Reading Bracewell is sheer pleasure. His British colleagues describe his work as "lyrical" and "inspired." One critic calls him "the poet laureate of late capitalism," while another says his prose "shimmers with metaphysical warmth." Even allowing for critical exaggeration, there's no question this is a writer of huge talent, with a lot to say.
