Apparently, It's Not a Pink Floyd Cover Band

by Ron Hogan

usnthem.JPGLast night I made it out to UKNew York for a launch party in honor of Us and Them, a collection of drawings-with-text that reveals "What the British Think of The Americans [and] What The Americans Think of The British." I wish there were some samples of the artwork available online, but what I saw at the party has a very enjoyable, Danny Gregory sort of feel to it. In addition to meeting co-author Paul Davis, I also had a pleasant conversation with Steven Guarnaccia, whose "moderne" version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears is loaded with images of hip furniture by the likes of Eames and Noguchi, which made it sound right up my alley. The crowd seemed to be about half "us" and half "them," but all in favor of the scrumptious appetizers, including bite-size portions of vegetarian (I think) bubble and squeak.


Not sure if I'm us or them, but if them eat vegetarian bubbles and squeak, I'm an us. Is nothing sacred anymore?
