Reviews of this Book

“Since the age of 14, my mentor was Dizzy Gillespie and through him I became addicted to the music of Cuba way back in the ’40’s. This book (A Pleasant Vertigo) is an inventive and witty voice that cuts through like a slide trumpet.”
–Quincy Jones

“Definitely a page-turner, once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. It reads more like a suspense thriller than an expose of the contemporary art world.”
–Andy Moses

“A disturbing and powerful journey into the heart of Art World darkness. Sexy, smart, and with a cutting satiric edge – a raw, real ride on a wave of champagne and mad ego, and at the same time a thoughtful meditation on art and life. ”
–Michael Guinzburg
