Jimmy Chen plots the temperaments of famous writers on his subjective scale of arrogance and genius – a delightful concept, though one bound to trigger equally subjective beefs. (For instance: Susan Sontag belongs much lower and further to the right, as does Joan Didion.)
Pair with this more objective, or at least more data-based, visualization of how long it took writers to go from rookie to genius.
My cousin Mike Romano recently sent me these photos some of which I had either never seen or had forgotten about. The first photo is meself with my paternal grandmother and grandfather probably taken sometime in the early 1950’s. The second photo was taken on May 21, 1955, my first communion. I think it was the last time that I attended a Catholic mass. The third photo is my father, jauntily dressed, and his sister Mary, both of whom were born in Sicily. The fourth small photo is my father and his parents probably taken in New London CT during or right after WWII. The last photo taken in the summer of 1968 was my mother and father’s surprise 25th wedding anniversary held at a country club in Pawcatuck CT. My Uncle George Chiaradio and godfather, a rabid NY Yankee fan, is on the far left. My father and mother are next, flanked by my godmother Amelia Turrisi who is still going strong at 97 living in Westerly, RI. My mother and my godmother never called each other Louise and Amelia. They always used the Italian cumore, pronounced ‘koo-MAH-reh’,
One of the most touching pieces that I have ever read.
