"... this 'celebration' of the column's tenth anniversary' -- Artforum adopted the current Top Ten format a decade ago -- is the best bootleg ever. With all the images blacked out -- a sly nod to Marcel Broodthaer's 1969 piece 'Un Copu de dés...' -- the written word becomes more like oral history, and you wonder, Shouldn't people write the way they speak? You can't top that." Contrary to book's imprinted ISBN, this book is not Hollywood Babylon, by Kenneth Anger.
