"This one is about a man who was in on the founding of the first major art movement to originate in the United States, Abstract Expressionism, and whose pictures all fell apart due to an unfortunate choice of materials. He is Rabo Karabekian, aminor charachter in Breakfast of Champions, whose parents survived the fir st attempted genocide of this century, the slaughter by Turkey of its Armenian citizens before the First World War. Rabo writes this autobiography in the mansion of his waterfrony estate in East Hampton, Long Island, New York, which houses the largest collection of Abstract Expressionist paintings still in private hands - Pollocks, Rotyhkos, De Koonings, Gorkys, Kitchens, and on and on. He acquired them in repayment for small loans to colleagues in the early days of the movememt, whwn paintings about absolutely nothing but themselves were considered worthless.
