OCTOBER 2019 | Volume 184
"We invent ourselves to wipe out what we know."
A New York cop and his estranged rich surgeon brother meet for the first time in 18 years in a brownstone attic to sell off their parents' furniture. The brothers are party to revelation after revelation, by which they slowly come to realize the consequences of their past decisions. Suddenly the cost of the pieces of furniture before them seems no weightier than that of the choices they made so long ago. Arthur Miller at his best!
"The more you can throw it away the more it's beautiful."
