Why on Earth would I buy not one, but two of those minibooks by notorious art toff Saatchi? I don't even *like* contemporary art?! Nono. What I enjoyed about his writing is ---- the British humour. He has the art of the British snide putdown and self-irony down pat in two perfect little compendiums. Even better, Mr Saatchi is not remotely British by birth and original culture. There is hope: we all can learn.

謹向西九諮詢會及西九文化管理局諸君推薦 My Name Is Charles Saatchi And I am An Artoholic，作者 Charles Saatchi 乃英國近代最有影響力的藝術品收藏家，被譽為 “ super-collector ” 及 “ the most successful art dealer of our times” ，因他慧眼而成名的有 Damien Hirst 及 Tracey Emin，以及更多。其私人藝廊 Saatchi Gallery (薩奇藝廊) 乃英國本土及國際新進藝術家的競技場，藝廊網站更是所有想踫運氣的未成名藝術家必定掛單之地。 Charles Saatchi 一人分飾多角 -- 藝術愛好者、收藏家、藝術項目贊助人、管理及營運人，他的見解，既是經驗之談，亦是肺腑之言。</p><p>書內其中一條問題是問 Charles Saatchi 對近年全球各地藝術館紛紛標榜其建築外貌的看法，發人深省，以下是他的答話節錄 (頁 51)：</p><p>... So although a Bilbao or two is thrilling, there seems little point in spending millions on creating identical, austere Modernist palaces in every world city, rather than using the money to actually buy some art...</p><p>他山之石，可以攻玉，各位有心人，笑納。
