Helen A. Harrison's book "An Accidental Corpse."

authorStaff Writer on Dec 4, 2023

The Leiber Collection in Springs will host Helen A. Harrison on Sunday, December 10, at 3 p.m. as she discusses “An Accidental Corpse,” the second book in her Art of Murder Mysteries Series.

Accidents happen. But so does murder … . On the night of August 11, 1956, in the quiet East Hampton hamlet of Springs, Jackson Pollock crashed his car into a tree. The accident killed Pollock, the world-renowned abstract painter and notorious alcoholic, and his 25-year old passenger, Edith Metzger … or did it? Metzger’s autopsy reveals that she was already dead before the crash. Was it murder? This shocking question draws vacationing Detective Juanita Diaz and her husband, Captain Brian Fitzgerald, of the NYPD into a homicide investigation that implicates famous members of East Hampton’s art community — including Pollock himself.

Helen A. Harrison is a renowned art historian, museum director and journalist who specializes in modern American art. She is the director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs.
