AN IDLER’S DIARY
by Charlie Finch
In his new collection of New Yorker
columns, entitled Let’s See
(Thames & Hudson), Peter Schjeldahl writes of wandering the East Village with David Hammons, trying to imagine riffraff like a roll of aluminum foil in a restaurant doorway as art. On the other hand, F. Scott Fitzgerald advised in Afternoon of an Author
that "it is not good to go out without a destination".
