Jessie Wender on a new exhibit at the Jewish Museum that explores the subject of one of Diane Arbus’s most famous photographs, “A Jewish giant at home with his parents, in the Bronx, N.Y.”: http://nyr.kr/1jwQaio

“There are family photographs of [Eddie] Carmel as a young boy; art works of mythic and historic giants; a photograph by the artist Lisette Model, Arbus’s teacher and mentor, of a hermaphrodite entertainer who worked at Hubert’s Dime Museum and Flea Circus with Carmel; ephemera from Carmel’s life and career; and a collection of toy giants, like the Incredible Hulk.”

This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.

In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.

She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”

American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.
