Lawrence Weschler
Boggs: A Comedy of Values
1999

Here Lawrence Weschler, a staff writer for The New Yorker, details the personality and prosecution of J.S.G. Boggs, a man who draws realistic versions of world currency. But he's not a counterfeiter, he's an artist -- Weschler is clear on that. Unfortunately not everyone is similarly enlightened, namely the Bank of England and the U.S. Secret Service. Like Boggs' currency, Weschler's ruminations on the ultimate value of ink-stained paper are both thought-provoking and entertaining.
