KIRKUS REVIEW

Absorbing entertainment to anyone remotely interested in the story back of the market for art treasures of the world. And it needs no background of knowledge of art, simple appreciation of the human equation, the lucky breaks, the amusing incidents, the canny knowledge, the sportsmanship. Crammed with anecdotal material that would build into stories by themselves. And bristling with famous names, the world around. Women and men alike will enjoy it -- page any customers down their lane, --people who are collectors or would like to be; people who haunt country and city auctions; decorators; and those who like a good, meaty gossipy story of the art world.
