Journalist Bianca Bosker narrates her witty audiobook about the art world with pizzazz. She has a pleasing sound, paces the sometimes frantic-sounding proceedings well, and comes across as an authentic seeker. Performing in a comic style, she enhances the audiobook's ironic undertone, which suggests that many in the art world see journalists as "the enemy." In this work she seems like a combination journalist and action figure: She participates in performance art, stretches canvases, hangs out with gallerists and painters, sells art at a posh art fair in Miami, attends a dizzying number of openings, and, to top it off, becomes a guard at New York's modernist temple, the Guggenheim. Bosker is an intrepid soul with a talent for penetrating cultural demimondes--first wine in her earlier work, CORK DORK--and now art in GET THE PICTURE. A.D.M.
