I’ve been reading Museum: Behind the Scenes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art by Danny Danziger over the past few weeks. It’s the perfect book to read on the subway, because it’s broken into short essays (interviews with the questions removed) by employees across the Met. Though I am disappointed to see Education underrepresented, it’s fascinating to hear from donors, the florist, the head of security, curators, and custodians about what they do, how they came to work at the Met, and what their life is like outside of it.
