Michael Gross’ Upcoming Book Ruffles Feathers at the Met

0331metbook.jpg

Speaking of museums, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is already gathering together its efforts to quell some of the negative scenes that might play out in Michael Gross‘ forthcoming book about the museum, Rogues Gallery: The Secret History of the Moguls and the Money that Made the Metropolitan Museum. According to New York magazine, the museums’ board and higher-ups have been talking about the book recently, trying to figure out who talked, what they said, and how much damage control will need to be done, even threatening to go after Gross and his publisher, Broadway, should they perceive something as particularly libelous. In our mind, like with all “Don’t pay any attention to that thing over there!” efforts, of course, does nothing but draw more attention to the “thing over there” and will likely result in more copies of Gross’ book being sold. Case in point: we weren’t even aware that the book was coming out and now we’re super eager to read juicy stories about all the ne’re-do-wells that run the Met.
