Elegy for a Millionaire

by lechblaine

The Lifted Brow published an essay of mine in their ‘Capital’ edition. It’s a stupidly good line up of writing dealing with the richest subject available: money.

The piece is called ‘Elegy for a Millionaire’. The subject is my dad. It’s about how the trauma and poorness of his childhood created a lifelong obsession with wealth and leaving behind a financial legacy. Also: how workaholism is a well-meaning way to die early while earning your kids a lifetime of neurosis on the subjects of love and money.

You can read an excerpt from the essay at The Lifted Brow website.
