Smart Reads: That Post-Bloomsday Fever


Today in culture, we see the onslaught of all the press and praise (justly given) to Sheila Heti’s How Should a Person Be? which drops tomorrow (look for our coverage soon). And of course, Joyce.

The highlights:

Drunk texts and sexts, cute but bordering on nauseating.

-An honest theatrical playbill.

-In case you missed Bloomsday…

Colm Tóibín on Joyce.

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp gets restored.

Sheila Heti at the Paris Review, and the Los Angeles Review of Books.

-Another WWII novel? Or is it…

-Lessons from Louis C.K. And the New York Times.

-Behind the scenes of Lapham’s Quarterly.

-On virtual feminism.

David Mitchell’s Soapbox is back. And how we’ve missed it.
