Clicking With Writers

She shot Anne Sexton the day before the poet was admitted to a mental hospital. Visited Truman Capote before 4 p.m. because he'd be sober then. And was admonished by Philip Roth when she walked him down one too many Connecticut roads looking for the right backdrop: "Nancy, the road didn't write the book."

Now, there's an exhibition in LA featuring the work of Nancy Crampton, who's been taking photographs of writers since 1972: from Jhumpa Lahiri to David Foster Wallace to W.H. Auden.
