My virtue is that I say what I think, my vice that what I think doesn't amount to much.

An Inspired Theft

A story about theft by Ann Beattie:
Long, long ago, in the faraway kingdom of Virginia, a tall, somewhat-handsome man came to town. He had a rather well-known art gallery for a time in New York City, though in those days the word gallerist had not yet been invented, so he was just thought of by name. This man had come with his daughter, an equestrian, to visit several artists who showed at his gallery. This was a time so distant that Banksy, while certainly more than a gleam in his father’s eye, was not yet a star.

Ann Beattie is the author, most recently, of The Accomplished Guest.
