Now, on to this week's recommended reading:
Alexander Chee on historical fiction.
David Remnick speaks with ANNIE DILLARD! This is a fifteen minute recording; I wish it were 1500.
I loved this piece about makeup and men’s unwelcome, uninvited opinions on it.
Pickled radishes on Reading My Tea Leaves. YUM.
The P.G. Wodehouse Society of Lahore.
A new comic from Kate Gavino on Catapult.
Laura Turner on The Insufficiency of Self-Care.
Book-wise, I finished 99 Stories of God by Joy Williams. And now I’m trying to figure out what to say about it. I'm also slowly working through Prelude to Bruise by Saeed Jones. It's phenomenal.
Tonight: I have a hot date with Elena Ferrante’s fourth Neopolitan novel, The Story of the Lost Child. Unless I collapse from exhaustion and spend the evening watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries instead. Stranger things have happened.
