Gray Matters: Davis Sweet Killed Spalding Gray

GRAYESSAY In an essay published in the latest issue of The Village Voice, co-editor of the satirical website The Bean Mag, Davis Sweet, writes about his role in the recent, tragic death of monologist provocateur Spalding Gray.

“How did I kill Spalding Gray? By not empathizing with his ... troubles? By shrugging helplessly when he cried about putting on a ‘happy act’ in front of his four-year-old? No. I didn't even recognize I'd done it until later, when he left and
people I didn't know swarmed around me to ask about him. Something had nagged at me the entire time we spoke. But it was formless, and I didn't think to say it, to hold it out in front of me and sharpen it.”
