I like her very much from the Slate article, but the interviewer seems a little dense. Dali and his lobster, sheesh.

"Dali" and "de Nerval" are very similar names so you can understand the confusion.

After Carrington and Bourgeois and Tanning I was wondering about the longevity of women surrealist artists of that generation. Turns out, though, that this is a selection bias. The average life-span was an unremarkable 80 across the 12 artists I could think of (dragged down by Unica Zürn, Remedios Varo and Kay Sage).

I give too much.

Sometimes I fear I'm too attractive.

That's what I'd change.
