I can highly recommend Arnold Weinstein's "unauthorized autobiography" of Rivers, What Did I Do?
if you want to expand your ignorance.

Kevin Wolf

I'm plenty familiar with Rivers, what with my art degree and all the art history I've read. Weirdly, though, I only really think of him "in situ" as it were, when I'm looking at pictures or reading about that generation of abstract expressionists (and their later work also). That is, I think of Larry Rivers only as part of the historical pack. Not much interest in him individually — and on top of that he seems to have been a colossal jerk.

Coincidentally I am reading a book by David Lehman called "The Last Avant-Garde: The Making of the New York School of Poets," so I just learned about Larry Rivers too. Thanks for a very nice supplement to my reading.
