Studs Loves Love Affair

Legendary author and broadcast personality Studs Terkel has offered these words of praise for the back cover of Avis Berman's MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH MODERN ART:
"I was deeply moved and exhilarated in reading the memoir of Katharine Kuh -- a prophet and art critic. She had the eye of a pioneer [and] she wrote about her true love with enthusiasm and ebullience...This book is as exciting as seeing a Hopper for the first time."

All Hopped Up and Ready to Go!
