For those of us who have fantasized about hanging out with artists at one of those smoky 19th century fin de seicle cafes in Montmarte or Barcelona, and talking about art for hours, this book is a fantasy come true in the 21st century as 50 talented artists open up and converse with the reader. A must have book to kindle artistic creative energy!
- “When it comes to supporting artists and arts writers, Robert Bettmann is a force of nature. Lucky the creators and annotators who meet his standards, and lucky the audiences and readers who can appreciate the results.” - Lewis Segal, Los Angeles Times
- “This is an important and beautifully produced anthology and should be on the‘must read’ list for all who think of Washington, D.C. as a limited, embattled political arena. The focus is on the voices of artists in dance, visual art, theatre, poetry, creative writing, and the pieces are provocative and thoughtful. I don’t know of any other collection similar to this, and applaud the work of all the contributors, and the vision of Robert Bettmann, General Editor.” Dr. Naima Prevots, Chair Emerita, Performing Arts Department, American University
