Gregory Gibson, an author and antiquarian book dealer, has written a page-turner of a tale - how a rare-book dealer bought a trunk full of photos and papers, pieced them together to prove that these were Diane Arbus' training ground photos, made in the legendary Hubert's Museum on Times Square. But wait, there's more, and more and more... " A sideshow of singular stories masterfully intertwined. Meet the photographer, the ephemerist, and the carnival talker, 'They're all on the inside, they're on the inside..." Ricky Jay.
