Mentors, “Full of Humor and Personality”
On his blog Triumph of the Now, reviewer Scott Manley Hadley discusses the many intriguing aspects of Mentors, a forthcoming memoir by art historian and scholar Francis M. Naumann:
“An odd but consistently engaging text about academic mentorship, about art, about art history, about writing, about ageing, about illness, about artists and about being successful and self-confident in New York in the second half of the twentieth century. It’s an unexpected pleasure. […] This is undeniably an enjoyable book, full of humour and personality and a real sense of all the various people who mean a lot to Naumann. It’s an easy, warm, unpatronising read and – entering it with no pre-conceptions at all – thoroughly enjoyable!”
Mentors publishes next month.
