The Nearly Un-Dead
Anyone who is a fan of good writing knows the work of Henry Allen. He's a Pulitzer Prize-winning critic and an editor now, but he writes too little, in his fans' opinions. Luckily, he has a piece today on the new wax museum that is sure to leave you laughing in delight. A quote from it:
"Of course they're not playing dead, they're playing alive. No matter. There's something creepy about them; liminal, as anthropologists would say -- on the threshold between dead and alive, statue and ghost, art and trick."
