NPR stories about Jean Michel Basquiat
With her gift book selections, NPR's Ketzel Levine will take you wandering through old maps and contemporary art galleries, courtside at the NBA, inside the minds of raucous high school kids, and into the embrace of poems.
"The right person (think: agelessly hip) will love what this young New Yorker did with oil sticks and acrylics and will skim the essays to fill in the biographical blanks," writes senior correspondent Ketzel Levine of this book collecting the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat. Levine includes it in her roundup of the season's best gift books.
