Praise For Pacific Standard Time

 "As a journal of record, the volume fills in innumerable lacunae.  The post-war New York art scene has dominated the text books for far too long; this necessary resource redresses the balance with authority, wit and academic rigour, convincing the reader that it is indeed time for this history to be set down."—The Art Newspaper



 "The book is heavy on gorgeous reproductions of iconic L.A. artwork, and, ambitious in scale and scope, represents a significant effort and achievement."—Publishers Weekly 

 

"Consider [Pacific Standard Time] the missing general textbook on the rise, fall and transformation of post-World War II art produced in Los Angeles."--Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times
