-The Paris Review covers Justin Bieber? That’ll be the day.

-On Cracking the Egyptian Code

-The Girls finale write-up we’ve all been waiting for.

-Woodcuts. Just in case you wished that scene in Vertigo would turn into a feature-length book.

-Fiona Apple, musical hermit.

-Infinite Jest on stage.

-What is “The Moth”?

-America after meritocracy.
