Punishment and Crime

I had in mind a couple of things for today’s post—until I read this jaw-dropping account of a stolen de Kooning painting, its improbable recovery, and the man who “needed to show the world he existed; [who] needed to release himself from his prison of impotence.”

Emily Benedek is a masterful storyteller, so please—I implore you—stop what you’re doing right now, turn off all your devices, tell everyone around you to go away for an hour, and get lost in an American tragedy.
