DE KOONING'S BICYCLE Artists and Writers in the Hamptons

by | Read by Grover Gardner

Contemporary Culture • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Follow Grover Gardner to the Hamptons of the 1960s, where you’ll find American abstract expressionists--De Kooning, Pollock, and others--struggling with their art and their addictions in a famed artist’s colony. Gardner, as usual, delivers the prose with depth and alacrity, painting rich word pictures and anecdotes of daily life and the artistic chaos that led to later--often posthumous--fame. With his narrative skills, Gardner takes what could be a mildly informative account and delivers a cinematic audio treatment of these debauched characters, guiding us on a tour of their creative minds through the lens of their daily lives at this time and place.
