Why I won't Be Going To Lunch Anymore

These short stories explore dimensions of the Santa Fe art world that would be difficult to examine without the artifice and safety of fiction. The awkward relationship between money, fashion, and creativity simultaneously enlivens and poisons the landscape. I suspect the book contains a number of bitter little romans a clef, but these stories are useful and instructive even if you don't know Santa Fe.
