frieze_magazine_logoBrian Sholis of Frieze calls Rogues’ Gallery “an unabashedly unofficial history… ranging from the Met’s early days as ‘a firetrap with shellacked floors and walls covered with red billiard cloth’ to the questions facing the institution today as it adjusts to a new director, Thomas P. Campbell, after being led for 30 years by Philippe de Montebello. It quickly becomes clear that Gross’s large cast of characters is not only squabbling over the institution itself; many are also jockeying for position among New York’s social elite. Gross is a meticulous storyteller, and Rogues’ Gallery is an entertaining romp.”
