I only read 100 pages because I had this book as ILL and it was due back. It is a compendium of old NYC stories of neighborhoods, crimes, rackets and all else. Generally 1840-1900, though it does go farther on sometimes. Entertaining and educational throughout.

There were a handful of interesting parts, but a lot of it turned into a laundry list of names. Once I decided to start skipping over parts that went too far down into details I started enjoying it a little more.

n Revisionist Art, Bob Dylan offers silkscreened covers of popular magazines from the last half century that somehow escaped history's notice. As Luc Sante notes in his introduction to this collection, they seem to emanate, "from a world just slightly removed from ours--a world a bit more honest about its corruption, its chronic horniness, its sweat, its body odour." Art critic B. Clavery provides a history of Revisionist Art, from cave drawings, to Gutenberg, to Duchamp, Picasso and Warhol. This book also features vivid commentaries on the work, (re)acquainting the reader with such colourful historical figures as the Depression-era politician Cameron Chambers, whose moustache became an icon to the gay underworld and Gemma Burton, a San Francisco trial attorney who used all of her assets in the courtroom. According to these works, history is not quite what we think it is.
Luc Sante is a critic and essayist and the author of numerous books, most recently Kill All Your Darlings and Folk Photography. B. Clavery is the editor of Sluggo: A Magazine of the Transformative Arts.
