Trow drops in Naples

George W. S. Trow is remembered by Stephen Metcalf in Slate.

Trow might have enjoyed the irony of being buried inside the NY Times' $4.95 obit dispenser. Even the dead must suck geld for the Times.

He died in Naples. I knew there was something about him. He's the only USian I know who would live there by choice -- other than me. The gaping wound of that place -- the wretched euro-future, here, now.

Even a director born there couldn't get near it. Twice.

Wikipedia. Thanks to wood s lot for the word.
