No Passwords

No Passwords. © Chris Bronsk 2014.

“He wanted a different life, a new life. Which should have been as easy as buying something. As simple as opening a new account. He’d wanted to make a new name for himself and the new password that would access his secrets would be (‘preferably some combination of letters and digits’)—no, no passwords. And no different names—no name at all.”

—Joshua Cohen, from Four New Messages (Graywolf, 2012)

(First in a new series on reading in public, inspired by Kertész)
