  • Terrified By Things Going Bump In The Flight

    Terrified By Things Going Bump In The Flight
    I'll do almost anything on an airplane to distract myself from the fact that I'm actually on an airplane. I walk down the gangplank (there must be another word for that entryway, but gangplank sounds just about right to me) carrying between 70 and 80...

    Reader of the Week: Francine Westergaard

    I grew up in Glendale. When the new paperbacks were priced at $4.95 (this would be at the old Crown Books), I decided that was too expensive, and I would start buying used books exclusively. That must have been just when Brand Bookshop opened, because...
  • Editor's choice: 'Summer of the Dead'

    Editor's choice: 'Summer of the Dead'
    Ackers Gap, W.Va. After my previous travels there, no encouragement was necessary for another excursion. The town is more than merely a speck on an imaginary map, and it is a way to channel my former Chicago Tribune and Pulitzer Prize-winning...
  • Eula Biss' 'On Immunity' is a beautiful shot of insight

    Eula Biss' 'On Immunity' is a beautiful shot of insight
    "The womb is sterile," Eula Biss observes toward the end of "On Immunity: An Inoculation," her meditation on the risks and rewards of vaccination, "and so birth is the original inoculation." From the moment of our emergence, this means, we are equally...
