"An indelible portrait of a peculiar society." —Vogue

Sarah Thornton's vivid ethnography—an international hit, now available in twenty translations—reveals the inner workings of the sophisticated subcultures that make up the contemporary art world. In a series of day-in-the-life narratives set in New York, Los Angeles, London, Basel, Venice, and Tokyo, Seven Days in the Art World explores the dynamics of creativity, taste, status, money, and the search for meaning in life.
