Art Critic Dave Hickey Calls It Quits (Again) with Pirates and Farmers

timthumb.phpI have a review of Dave Hickey’s latest book up at The Texas Observer.  Check it out.

It was [George] Washington’s one simple desire to be seen relinquishing power, that he might be the first American to be seen stepping down from office. He was ultimately seen doing so, and the world is better for it.”

—Dave Hickey, “American Cool,” Pirates and Farmers, (emphasis in the original)
