    Elaine Castillo : How to Read Now

    “White supremacy makes for terrible readers” says today’s guest Elaine Castillo, arguing that we are all overeducated in a set of fundamentally terrible reading techniques, ones that impoverish us as readers and thinkers, ones that diminish the availability of meaning and meaningfulness in our lives.

    Daniel Mendelsohn : Three Rings — A Tale of Exile, Narrative, and Fate

    Daniel Mendelsohn : Three Rings — A Tale of Exile, Narrative, and Fate

    Daniel Mendelsohn’s latest book you could say is about digression and about ring composition, a form of storytelling with digression at its heart.
