En Vacances

Off to Dordogne, for a (partly) working vacation, on assignment for the Wall Street Journal. After brushing up with a French phrasebook, I happened upon an a phrase guide for art-show openings---a very atypical, hilarious page in the May issue of Art in America (where I'm contributing editor).

A couple of sample translations from "a PHRASE GUIDE for the spring art season," pen-drawn by artist Amy Sillman (Page 53):

"Challenging, difficult work!" (Really gets on my nerves.)

"You have such integrity!" (No career.)

No more posts till May 13, at the earliest. Au revoir!
