Joseph del Pesco & Scott Oliver, eds., 100 Shotgun Reviews: Contemporary Art in the Bay Area: October 2005-April 2007, (Collective Foundation, 2007).

I picked this up at 21 Grand last night after the New Reading Series reading. Just as the title spells out, this book contains a plethora of shortish (mostly 1-2 page) art reviews and interviews covering a wide range of Bay Area art venues. With 50 contributors, the approach to the writing of art criticism is varied and at times uneven. But for someone trying to get a good sense of the various art scenes in the Bay, this is a good place to start.
