David Amsden, writing in New York, fleshes out the details of the last days of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy Blake. Amsden’s a poetic writer:
During their moments of clarity there were few people as thrilling to be around as these two–the banter was invigorating, the exchange of ideas fervent–but an incident like this was a reminder that moments of clarity were increasingly rare. For many friends this image of the couple–abrasive, frightened, isolated from what they loved and fostered–would prove to be their final memory.
And those friends are heavily referenced in the piece, as very few were willing to talk on the record.
