Time again for “In the Bag,” the game that challenges you to tell the truth about your taste. The rules: you can stuff any five works of art into your bag before departing for a desert island, but you have to decide right this second. No dithering–the bad guys are beating on your front door. No posturing–you have to say the first five things that pop into your head, no matter how silly they may sound. What do you put in the bag?
Here are my picks, as of this second:
BOOK (FICTION): John P. Marquand, Point of No Return
BOOK (NONFICTION): Truman Capote, In Cold Blood
PAINTING: Milton Avery, Red Rock Falls
CD: Jim Hall and Ron Carter, Alone Together
FILM: Tom DiCillo, Living in Oblivion
