The Accidental Corpse




On April 3, Helen Harrison, director of Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, visited the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton. The audience heard the secrets behind Harrison’s latest book “The Accidental Corpse,” a fictionalized story based on the accidental death of artist Jackson Pollock and his car passenger Edith Metzger. The introduction was made by Tom Edmonds, executive director of the Southampton History Museum, which co-sponsored the event.
