Sad that Peter Viereck died. Good that The New Yorker put the awesome article about him online. (See also.)
Ooh. I hadn’t clicked through to that NYer story the first time but have it printed out now.
I kinda love this, from Viereck’s obit:
“He was twice married to, and twice divorced from, Anya de Markov.”
That could be the opening line of a novel…
Ah — I didn’t click b/c, as you say, it wasn’t online then. Duh.
