For a year I did no work, nor did he. We toured the world—from king-size triple-sheeted bed to king-size triple-sheeted bed. All the travel was on someone else’s tab. We went from Dokumenta to the Basel Art Fair, from the Whitney to Palazzo Grassi, from Düsseldorf to Munich, from Venice to Vienna, Nice to Paris, Madrid to Mallorca, London to Dublin, Stockholm to Oslo, Tokyo to Hong Kong to Beijing. Who cared where we were, as long as we were in bed? I remember a blur of other artists, art dealers, collectors, critics, like ghosts in a Shakespearean tragedy.
I have always been struck by Proust’s motto (which Colette appropriated): “Ce ‘je’ qui est moi et qui n’est peut-être pas moi” (“This ‘I’ which is myself and yet perhaps not myself”). ” It is in response to this declaration and other internal evidence in the diaries and letters (including scrawled notes to herself on the rough incomplete draft, indicating where she wished bits of marginal material to be inserted) that I have taken the liberty of reconstructing Ms. Wing’s last manuscript as she doubtless wished it to appear.
I was not just fucking a man when I fucked Dart; I was fucking American history, the May-flower myth, the colonial past. While my ancestors were tearing their pumpernickel apart in the Ukraine, Dart’s were choosing amongst a plethora of silver forks and taking tea at the Colonial Dames of America. The table analogy was apt, for though Dart’s family was downwardly mobile (as only Social Register WASPs can be), they still had enough sets of silver and bone china to serve presidents and kings—in the unlikely event that presidents and kings should come to call.
