Contemporary art has become a mass entertainment, a luxury good, a job description and, for some, a kind of alternative religion.
Sarah Thornton's shrewd and entertaining fly-on-the-wall narrative takes us behind the scenes of the art world, from art school to auction house, showing us how it works, and giving us a vivid sense of being there.
