This eloquent, lacerating book has become the authoritative account of the new British art of the 1990s, its legacy in the 21st century, and what it tells us about the fate of high art as a whole in contemporary society. Now fully updated and with a new concluding chapter, "High Art Lite" provides a sustained analysis of the so-called "young British artists", exploring the reasons for its popularity and the much-publicised work of its leading exponents: Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Jake and Dinos Chapman, Marcus Harvey and Sarah Lucas, among others.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I cannot help but endorse his analysis of the high art lite tendency ... its abject willingness to be fucked up by the 1990s cult of celebrity; fucked over by the 1990s boom in consumerism; fucked sideways by its adoption of the styles and modes of popular culture; and fucked to buggery by its co-option by the new Labourite idiotology." -- Will Self, New Statesman
