Profile

Contrary to popular fantasy, traveling to Montauk or Coney Island will not necessarily renew one’s bond with nature. For those looking for inspiration before a tan, there’s A Leaky Tent Is a Piece of Paradise, a new anthology of nature writing by twentysomethings. Poet Cecily Parks writes on her fear (and attraction to) lightning, and painter James Prosek on the beauty of eels; tonight, you'll hear journalist Hugh Ryan read about a drag queen who helped him, uh, pitch a tent.
