Emily Weinstein is a nonfiction writer living in Brooklyn.
There are two Emily Weinsteins who are (or once were) described by the words “a nonfiction writer living in Brooklyn.” You might be surprised or amused by this information, but the Emily Weinsteins have known about it ever since they went to art camp together, in Connecticut, in the 1990s. When it was discovered by Emily (Meg) Weinstein that the summer camp already had an Emily Weinstein, the camp directors assured her it wouldn’t be a problem. They said, ”We’ll just do what we did with the Lisa Rabinowitzes, and have one of you use your middle name.”
And so it was, and so it is.
At art camp, one Emily Weinstein was known as Emily Meg Weinstein and the other was known as Emily Weinstein, or sometimes, Emily Not-Meg Weinstein, or Emily Nutmeg Weinstein. Neither of these Emily Weinsteins is the one who paints cats in North Carolina.
