I just read an article
in the 7/4/16 issue of The New Yorker
magazine that strongly reminded me of what Neal might have become post-series under a new alias.
The article is called "Swimming with Sharks"
and is about a man named Loïc Gouzer, who is thirty-six and Swiss, and has worked as a modern art specialist in the art auction world (London and New York, Sotheby's and Christie's) for most of his career.
Below I have included excerpts from the article that struck me as how Gouzer could be a version of Neal Caffrey - you know, one that's chosen to go "straight" (aka work legally), but is still pushing boundaries, chafing against authority (especially in the forms of convention and tradition), exercising his love of risk-taking (physical and "work"-related), using his people skills, and his talent for creative thinking. And his love and knowledge or art, naturally :-)
I'm not sure how long the New Yorker keeps links to its articles available to non-subscribers, so if you want to read the whole article (recommended :-) then you'll want to do so soon. Otherwise, enjoy the excerpts under the cut :D( Neal Caffrey totes subscribed to The New YorkerCollapse )
