Essays, Pippi Longstocking, and more advice from Anne Lamott.
A refreshing recipe with a homemade syrup that’s as easy as that warm spring breeze (finally!). Justin and I talk about the “Roseanne reboot,” banned words, and the dynamics of coffee shops as public spaces and what’s reasonable to expect as a customer (or, as in a recent case, a non-customer).
Michael McCormack’s new book began as a letter of complaint to his father, who was a world champion football player (Cleveland ftw! For once!), NFL coach, and hall of famer. As he wrote, though, it turned into something much bigger.
By day, Cynthia Robinson is an art historian based in New York and a professor of Medieval and Islamic Art at Cornell University. By night/ any other time, she’s one of my favorite new authors. We talk about writing, not writing, and her new novel Birds of Wonder.
