A New York Story: A Strange Fever by Michael Greenberg

Memoirville recommends…The Accidentalist–Michael Greenberg’s new column in Bookforum.

One of my simple pleasures is receiving Bookforum in the mail and, throughout the month, pulling the increasingly creased and torn magazine out of my bag, reading through the articles, one by one. I’m about half-way through the new issue, Utopia is Gay, and Michael Greenberg’s piece, A Strange Fever, keeps bouncing around in my head as I walk through my days, thinking about the author wandering aimlessly through New York, with a lethal fever and heightened sensitivity to his surroundings. Greenberg’s fever is an affliction I’ve fantasized ail all observant writers; in his case, remaining inside that fever meant inching closer to death, but once the fever has broken, death remains still.
