I warn you, this is extremely sad. You should know in advance that the kid in the videos, Ben Breedlove, died not long after making them, and on Christmas. You will fall in love with him and then know that he is no longer on this earth. I don’t even know why I’m posting about him, it’s like spreading heartbreak. I guess I just want to acknowledge the passing of this impossibly sweet kid.
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 →
