John and Julie and How It Is


As a guy who’s alleged to know something of words and their artful deployment, my one regret about this wonderful article is that I was unable to conjure a more artful quote that might convey the depth of admiration I hold for these two and all they have done for me, for my family, and for my work (beginning when we met in prison (!), then the cover of “Population 485,” and right on through to the photographs so essential to “Visiting Tom”) …especially as they face Julie’s death with all the character, intelligence, and ethic I have come to love.

I hope you read it.
