Luc Sante, Author

A frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books, Luc Sante has written extensively on urban life and the colorful history of New York City in particular. As a culture watcher and longtime New Yorker himself, Sante will set the stage for understanding the city’s explosive 1980s art world and the cast of characters that made it tick. Sante is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and Award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He is currently a visiting professor of writing and the history of photography at Bard College.
