The Art Assassin
In this provocative and groundbreaking nonfiction novel, Albert Wang who is an investigative reporter in the tradition of Hunter Thompson and Norman Mailer reinvents his fictional alter-ego qi peng as a Utah conceptual artist who is trying to make it into the contemporary art world, particularly New York City, from a relative unknown. This mystery novel begins with qi peng's suicide within his future and leads down a darker path into this emerging artist's sordid past as he aspires to find love and appreciation from his fellow artists/characters/celebrities... Wang's controversial reportage as an act of performance art focuses on the spiritual "murder" of the soul as a counterpart to Truman Capote's classic book, "In Cold Blood," that looks at physical murder of humans.
