Carmen Agra Deedy

I love and collect contemporary art and go to all the art fairs. I love Damien Hirst and Matthew Barney.

People are richer and more complex than just their day-to-day professional pursuits might suggest.
I always thought the point of life was something richer than that. Something full of great tragedy or comedy, reversal of fortune, ecstasy, that kind of thing. But no, contemporary urban theorists seem satisfied with the merely livable, which always sounds to me like the merely survivable, the not so bad.
It is a rare American who does not have some story about how music has made our lives richer and more interesting, how it has changed our moods, brought out the best in our character and even sometimes helped us earn a living.

Edward McKendree Bounds

Jessica Brown Findlay
