Preview: 'Basquiat' December 1, 2005 "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.
