Seven Days In The Art World
Granta Publications, Mar 8, 2012 - 304 pages
Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description and, for some, a kind of alternative religion. Sarah Thornton's shrewd and entertaining fly-on-the-wall narrative takes us behind the scenes of the art world, from art school to auction house, showing us how it works, and giving us a vivid sense of being there.

Review: Seven Days in the Art WorldUser Review - Michael - Goodreads
This work provides valuable insights into the world of contemporary art, by focusing on seven different aspects of that world. Ms. Thornton's prose is imminently readable and her sociological approach to art culture is perfect. Very glad I read this one. Read full review
Review: Seven Days in the Art WorldUser Review - Rahool Gadkari - Goodreads
It is a well written book. I went into it knowing precious little about the art world. It definitely helped me gain a decent perspective on how things function within this veiled environment. The chapters are quite engaging and informative at the same time. I would definitely recommend it. Read full review
