Summary

From the late editor, writer, and critic, one of the great chroniclers of the art, fashion, and celebrity scenes: an expansive collection of 35 essays that offer an intimate look into the worlds of some of the most important and well-known artists, designers, and actors of our time.

For more than three decades, Ingrid Sischy's profiles and critical essays have been admired for their keen observation and playful style. Many of the pieces that appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair from the 1980s to 2015 are gathered here for the first time, including her masterful profiles of Nicole Kidman, Kristen Stewart, Miuccia Prada, Calvin Klein, Jeff Koons, Jean Pigozzi, Alice Neel, and Francesco Clemente, among others, as well as her exclusive interview with John Galliano after his career nosedived in 2011. 

Whether writing about a young Alexander McQueen, the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe, Sebastião Salgado, Cindy Sherman, or Bob Richardson, or the Japanese musical theater group Takarazuka Revue, Sischy's close attention to the unexpectedly telling detail results in vividly crafted, incisive portraits of individuals and their works. 

Here is a unique collection that gives listeners unprecedented access to a dazzling range of artists from one of the greatest cultural critics of a generation.

Critic reviews

“Ingrid was the sharpest person I have ever met with a pen that produced magic and truthful words. Fear was never an option. Truth was her driving force. She was a journalistic tour de force and the world is a poorer place without her wisdom.” (Elton John)  

“For Sischy admirers, this is a treasure; for everyone interested in art journalism at its crisp, inquisitive, and resonant best, this is gospel.” (Donna Seaman, Booklist

"A shrewd eye investigating worlds too often dominated by hype...these smart, stylish, and perceptive essays...impressively display the range of [Sischy's] interests and talents." (Kirkus Reviews
