The informative and entertaining voices of this solid work are as idiosyncratic as the artist himself. This is an excellent history for fans of Rauschenberg and mid-20th-century art.--Publishers Weekly
Fall in love with Robert Rauschenberg, galactic master of art and life, through his worldwide collaborations.--Dorothy Lichtenstein, president of the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation
This makes oral history a peculiarly apposite way of approaching him. The voices in Sara Sinclair's new book appear as randomly put together as do the car tyre and stuffed goat of Rauschenberg's combine 'Monogram'. . . . And it is this fabrication that makes Sinclair's book so fine. Rauschenberg emerges from it less as a painting than as a combine; which is to say, a Rauschenberg.--Charles Darwent "Times Literary Supplement "
