Trapped in Ecuador  SEP 06 2013

For more than a year, Julian Assange hasn't left Ecuador's London Embassy. But that hasn't limited his political reach or his social life as much as you'd imagine. From Vanity Fair's Sarah Ellison: The Man Who Came to Dinner.

Julian Assange hasn't set foot outside Ecuador's London embassy in more than a year-avoiding extradition to Sweden, where he faces allegations of sexual assault. But physical confinement seems only to enhance his reach. The WikiLeaks founder has video-addressed the U.N., launched a Senate campaign in absentia in his native Australia, entertained Lady Gaga, and played a key role in the case of N.S.A. leaker Edward Snowden. As several movies depict aspects of Assange's story, Sarah Ellison focuses on the center of his web.
