Better late than never this week. I’ve made my first soup of the season this evening, a simple puree of boiled cauliflower, cream, chicken stock, salt, pepper and chives. There’s not much to it, but it tastes simple and nourishing and gives me a good excuse to shovel in big chunks of ciabatta.
Don’t take my giddy anticipation for it, here are a few reviews:
- John Darnielle’s first novel plays a dark game
- Sprinting Toward Epiphany: Talking With A Songwriter Turned Novelist
- We Shall All Be Healed
If you’d like to have your very own column on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, you only have a week left to enter your submission in their annual Column Contest.
Other articles that I’ve kept hanging around in tabs for far too long:
- The New Luddites: Why Former Digital Prophets Are Turning Against Tech
- Why Everyone Should Read Harry Potter
- My Daughter’s Homework Is Killing Me
- The Death of Adulthood in American Culture
- Fingerprint Words: The verbal tics that make up who we are—and how they spread to others
Okay, that’s it for the moment. Now get on with that wild, amazing week you were planning to have!
