I got to the NPR studio early yesterday, so I relaxed for a few minutes in the park behind the main branch of the New York Public Library. It was just so ridiculously pleasant I think I smiled the whole time, thereby signaling “crazy person” to all around me. Crazy person with a camera no less. But I was happy to be going to NPR to record a commentary, it was a nice day, all was well with the world for a few minutes. I mean, will you look at that tiny field of daffodils!!
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
