Original Post

Sarah Thornton is a writer, ethnographer and sociologist of culture. Described by the Washington Post as “the 
Jane Goodall of the art world” and by the Financial Times as a “skillfully nuanced” writer whose prose is characterized by “verve, insight and authenticity,” Thornton is the author of three books and hundreds of articles. Her narrative non-fiction best seller, Seven Days in the Art World, is available in eighteen foreign languages. Her latest book, 33 Artists in 3 Acts, which the San Francisco Chronicleclaimed would “startle even art-world insiders,” is a behind-the-scenes investigation of artists’ lives and credibilities. Formerly the chief writer on contemporary art for The Economist, Thornton is now a contributing editor of Cultured magazine and a contributor to many other publications, television programs and radio broadcasts. Thornton holds a BA in Art History and a PhD in Sociology. Her PhD was published as Club Cultures: Music, Media and Subcultural Capital. She was the co-editor of the first edition of The Subcultures Reader. Thornton was born in Canada. She lived in London, England, for many years and now resides in San Francisco.
