A Look Back at Iraq, The Lost Weekend's Author, Piero della Francesca at the Frick, and Our Word Maven

We continue our three-day series to mark the tenth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Then, we talk about writer Charles Jackson, whose life and work captured what it meant to be an addict and a closeted gay man in mid-century America. Curator Nathaniel Silver discusses the exhibit of Piero della Francesca paintings at the Frick Collection. And our word maven Patricia T. O’Conner takes your calls and questions on the intricacies and idiosyncrasies of the English language.
