Dubbed as "You Are What You Hang (or Don't)" by the "New York "
"Times, " "Inside Culture" takes us on a tour of 160 homes in and
around New York City, from affluent townhouses on Manhattan's Upper East
Side and rowhouses in blue-collar Brooklyn to middle and upper-class
suburbs of Long Island. The result is an unprecedented portrait of the
use of cultural artifacts--fine art, photographs, religious art--in
private lives.
"This is a first-class addition to what we know about culture in the
specific rather than the abstract."--Howard S. Becker, "Contemporary "

"Washington Times "
" A] voyeuristic thrill. . . . Lucid and entertaining. . . . A
fascinating book that will open the eyes of anyone who's ever glibly
said about art, 'I know what I like.' After reading "Inside "
"Culture, " they'll also know a little bit more about why."--Maureen
Corrigan, "New York Observer"
