“Lair and Refuge” by Allan Gurganus

28.5 April 22, 2020

Allan Gurganus gives the photographer Frank Hunter a tour of his North Carolina home: "Imagine a happier Miss Havisham.... Some writers keep impersonal offices elsewhere. I work right where I live. Every surface seems my next novel’s table of contents. Being a visual glutton, I want to love everything I see. And this form of happiness is manageable."

Read "Lair and Refuge: I Work at Home" from APS No. 11.
