Publisher's Summary

Keith Haring is synonymous with the downtown New York art scene of the 1980s. His artwork - with its simple, bold lines and dynamic figures in motion - filtered in to the world's consciousness and is still instantly recognizable, 20 years after his death. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition, adapted for audio, is a remarkable glimpse of a man who, in his quest to become an artist, instead became an icon.

A great listen for Haring fans

Full disclosure, Keith Haring is my all-time favorite artist. Therefore I was pretty sure I was going to find his journal interesting. I was not disappointed. Especially, after finishing the first couple years when he is a bit pretentious in his writing. But he's just coming out of his teens so it's understandable - especially to someone in their 50s like myself. After a couple of unrecorded years, the journal picks up in the mid-80s as his career begins to skyrocket and does not return to Earth. Keith freely shares his thoughts on the art-world, his friendships and loves, and his unfortunate, impending death. I'm very happy I listened. I feel I have a better grasp at understanding his art and the man, himself.
