Over the weekend I had a chance to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Julian Schnabel's movie about a French magazine editor, which happens to be my onetime (and sometimes still) profession. Much of the movie concerns a physical ailment that befalls the fateful Frenchman, but most viewers will be primarily interested in the scenes that show him working as a magazine editor. His work in these scenes consists of hanging out at a fashion shoot with a topless supermodel. My career was pretty much exactly like that.
Well, not all the time.
