  • My favorite part of “Jaws” is when Quint is introduced. The small town of Amity, which looks a lot like Montauk/Amagansett, is imperiled. A great white shark who’s been stalking its shores during bathing hours has eaten a small boy, so the townspeople have gathered.
  • Last night I dreamt I went to Tick Hall again. It seemed to me I stood under a bright sky in the Montauk Playhouse parking lot waiting for shuttle van service, for parking at the house was barred to me, I’d been told in an email.
  • Sunday found me lying on my parents' couch UpIsland, watching reruns of "Diff'rent Strokes," while noting Mr. Drummond's glaring eligibility — a fact lost on me when the later episodes originally aired in 1984. I was 6 — and how I'm now old enough to marry Mr. Drummond and become stepmother to Arnold, Willis, and Kimberly.
  • The Bardo is the subject of Laurie Anderson’s new exhibition at Guild Hall, and also what it feels like driving from one Hamptons party to another.
  • Any writer will tell you the real story lies in what you leave out. It’s the same with parties. Memorial Day weekend is about where you don’t go.
