PAYING FOR TREATMENT Nathan Heller, in his piece about how families are crowdfunding to cover medical costs, astutely observes that the exploitative storytelling culture underpinning GoFundMe “looks past all the interlocking motions of society in favor of the personal, the private, the atomized view” (“Tell Us What You Need,” July 1st). The crowdfunding system requires people, such as the parents of gravely ill children, to strategically craft a digital presence from their suffering. This is a serious moral concern: the practice of packaging experiences often dehumanizes storytellers by reducing them to the problems they face. Heller describes a project that funds therapy for black women and girls without requiring them to recount painful memories to benefactors. Such a campaign is a refreshing alternative in a culture where collecting and sharing stories…

goings on about town: this week

The brief but rich Drive East festival, at A.R.T./New York Theatres, Aug. 5-11, presents a packed program of Indian dance and music by accomplished performers from India and the U.S. One highlight is a solo evening by the Odissi dancer Bijayini Satpathy (above), whose technique is extraordinarily vivid—a powerful expression of the classical Indian ideal of storytelling through movement. Other participants include the Princeton-based sitar virtuoso Hidayat Khan and the bharata-natyam dancer Vidhya Subramanian, from Cupertino. ART Fred W. McDarrah Museum of the City of New York McDarrah, who died in 2007, was the first staff photographer of the Village Voice. His beat was Manhattan, and his photographs showed a maze of streets and ideas snaking their way down to the Hudson and the East River, streets filled with so many stories that I…

tables for two: wayla

In the cramped grid of Manhattan, any bit of outdoor space, especially in the warmer months, holds a special place in the hearts of air-starved city dwellers. For these deprived people, any sort of “garden” will do, even if it’s lined in cement, painted black, and deep in a valley of tenement buildings. Throw in some twinkle lights and it’s a vacation. Wayla, a new Thai restaurant tucked into a basement on the Lower East Side, has one of the neighborhood’s lovelier gardens, with large palm plants and candles, and, even better, it’s practically secret—hidden past the bar, through a narrow room of tables, all the way in the back. Wayla also has another thing that New Yorkers love very much: a runaway-hit dish, involving both noodles and meatballs. Why the…

comment: lost in translation

One function of the testimony that Robert Mueller, the special counsel who oversaw the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, delivered before two House committees last week was to illustrate how various factions in Washington have come to speak different languages. The words may be the same, but the meanings are not. “Un-American,” in the lexicon of Representative Denny Heck, Democrat of Washington, describes people in Donald Trump’s orbit who seek to cash in on their positions when dealing with Russians. For Representative Guy Reschenthaler, Republican of Pennsylvania, “un-American” means Mueller’s decision to include in his investigation’s report so much negative information about a man “who happens to be the President of the United States.” It’s hardly a wonder that Mueller occasionally appeared confused. Each time the questioning…

dept. of dissent: poetic justice

Last Tuesday, at the funeral for the Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, Ruth Bader Ginsburg delivered a eulogy. She concluded, “Justice Stevens much appreciated the writings of the literary genius known by the name William Shakespeare, so I will end with a line from the Bard fitting the prince of a man Justice Stevens was: ‘Take him for all in all, we shall not look upon his like again.’” Ginsburg’s wording was careful—it had to be, lest she mischaracterize her colleague’s views. Stevens didn’t appreciate the writings of Shakespeare; he appreciated the writings of the individual known as Shakespeare. Ginsburg’s “Hamlet” quote? Stevens, known for his dissenting opinions (Bush v. Gore, Citizens United v. F.E.C.), believed that it was probably written not by Shakespeare, the commoner from Stratford-upon-Avon, but…
