CHALK on the longest for the 2019 PEN / Bograd Weld Prize for Biography from PEN America

Open Letters Review lists CHALK as one of the Best Books of Biography for 2018.  “Passionate, prismatic biography of talentless fraud Cy Twombly; Rivkin makes Twombly’s story so incredibly gripping and revelatory that I was never even briefly tempted to stop reading and Google images of the garbage Twombly managed to sell for actual money.

Interview with Rachel Cohen in BOMB Magazine, “Sculpture Room”

CHALK named a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice 

Art Talk’s Edward Goldman suggest CHALK as one of the “The Best Holiday Gifts for Your Smart Friends.”

Reviews in The Paris Review, Entropy Magazine, 15 Bytes

Excerpt of CHALK in LitHub: “The Painting That Took 22 Years to Finish: On Twombly’s Say Goodbye”
