Attendance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has returned to levels not seen since 2001, says the The New York Observer. Perhaps understandably, no thank yous were issued to Rogues’ Gallery, but independent-minded reviewers have said the book re-ignites interest in and passion for the museum. “Even if you’ve been to the museum many times before, the stories Gross tells make you want to return immediately,” wrote Silvana Paternostro in Poder. “The tales are so compelling that instead of trying to downplay this book, the museum should be selling it in its gift shop.” Fat chance! But the paperback edition is on sale just about everywhere else that books are sold.
