- Check it, new fiction from Orhan Pamuk in this week’s New Yorker. I believe it’s part of his forthcoming novel Museum of Innocence due out in October.
- If you still haven’t read last week’s issue, don’t forget to read the article on New York City’s worst teachers. As someone who is friends with many teachers, I found it pretty fascinating.
- Hey, look, I’m quoted in the Globe in an article on books of miscellany! I always fear sounding like an idiot when reporters call. I don’t sound that bad this time.
- That’s it for today. I’m hoping to get back to a regular posting schedule now that September is here. It’s a busy month (I’m getting married at the end of it) but there are too many good books coming out soon to not post about.
I heard about the rubber rooms from this episode of this american life:
It’s with a documentary film director who made a movie about them, and seems to have a vastly different point of view than the new yorker article. It was a really fascinating hour.
