Email Even from nearby Windsor, getting to J. Google Maps gets it wrong by about a mile. There are no signs pointing the way, no commemorative plaque labeling this as a historic site. The real estate agent is running late.
I feel like a stalker. I feel like Mark David Chapman. Through the windshield, I assess the place — a chocolate-brown, gambrel-roofed, wood-framed house. Here is where he brought home students from Windsor High to groove to records on his hi-fi. Here is where he raised his children Matt and Margaret.
Here is where he allegedly penned fan letters to actresses Elaine Joyce and Catherine Oxenberg. Here is where he embraced Zen Buddhism. Here is where he left behind his identity as a New York Jewish writer and army vet to become whatever you make of the inkblot of his Cornish existence —Ascetic.

I ask Darrach about the schools. The kids could go to Cornish Elementary or Kimball Union Academy, she says, each of which is about a minute drive away. Or they could go to Hanover — about a minute drive. She brought up her kids in the area and the schools are great.
No, she says, Brooklyn. She suggests the Hanover Co-op — 17 miles away, yes, but stocked well enough, she says, so that you only would have to go there once every two weeks. I ask about remodeling the place. She tells me she can send me a list of architects.
