Don't Go Away

More

Blogging may be sparse at the moment, but I'll be writing in this space for another month, so I hope you'll keep checking in. For now, though, I'll send you off to other places: To the latest issue of the Atlantic, where you'll find a provocative excerpt from Robert Wright's next book (thick with claims I hope to argue with at some point), as well as Hanna Rosin on breast-feeding, T.C. Boyle on California wildfires, Josh Green on the Harvard of pot schools, James Parker on slasher films, and much, much more; to the latest TNR, for David Nirenberg's fascinating review essay on Paula Fredriksen's Augustine and the Jews; and to the latest New Yorker, for D.T. Max's engaging profile of Tony Gilroy.
