FROM THE PUBLISHER

The lives and works of blue-collar, African American artists Thornton Dial
and Lonnie Holley are documented in this true story of outsider art, ego,
exploitation, and race. Following the interaction between Dial, an illiterate
factory worker with creative genius, his comrade-in-arts Holley, and Bill
Arnett, a wealthy, white, and infamous art patron, this account details the
obsessions and exploitations found in the soap-opera world of modern art.
Congressmen, business tycoons, movie stars, academics, and the cultural elite
all play roles in a story where the distinction between hero and villain
becomes blurred.
