A New York Times bestseller, Basquiat: A Quick Killing in Art is the tragic story of the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, detailing his turbulent childhood, explosive dealings with the art world and rise to fame, which led to his death from a drug overdose at the age of twenty-seven. Phoebe Hoban brings some order to the chaos of Basquiat's life and the arcane dealings of the international art market, placing him in a context alongside his contemporaries, Julian Schnabel and Keith Haring, as well as his mentor, Andy Warhol.

'Compulsively readable ... Hoban's depiction of the glitzy 1980s art world is deadline accurate' --New York Times
'A terrific book ... most certainly the best book we will have on the never-never land of the Eighties art market' --Tony Parsons
'Hoban's portrait of Eighties Manhattan, scrupulously researched and based on hundreds of riveting interviews, is better than anything written by Bret Easton Ellis and Tama Janowitz' --Guardian
