    About The Book

    Frank Mann is an embittered, self-loathing civil servant who, as a character, would make Samuel Beckett proud. One day he quits going to work. Penniless, he is soon evicted and thrown out onto the Manhattan streets, where he falls in love with an East Village performance art dilletante. Determined to win her, he smashes a mirror, chants, and sets his head on fire in his debut as a New York performance artist, and, when this tactic fails, decides to have himself crucified on stage as the ultimate sacrifice to art. He dies, is resurrected, and never gets the girl. If the plot sounds absurd and funny, it is. The Book of Frank is comic relief, a much-needed, blistering satire of any “local art” performance scene, not just the Big Apple’s. Black hilariously excoriates the piercings, psychic violence, and banal pretensions of local art communities, with their stars, sycophants, and wannabes. Though Black’s novel is a welcome deflation of hip aesthetic pretensions and inanities, his satire is not generous enough to portray the “artists” in the book as genuine human beings, treating them instead, for all their superficial posings, as paper targets for rightly-aimed shots. The Book of Frank therefore indulges the one-sided, shallow behavior it so precisely and thoroughly castigates. And I don’t live in New York. Greg Burkman
