Weekly Reader

  • The Quarterly Conversation reviews Clarice Lispector’s The Hour of the Star, which I read recently.
  • The Av Club on Curtis Mayfield’s fantastic first album Curtis.
  • Jill Walker Rettberg’s tour of the new Electronic Literature Knowledge Base.
  • danah boyd on “digital self harm” as a proactive measure. I have worked with young people long enough to know this is not surprising at all.
  • I know it is Maxim, but this oral history of The Wire is awesome.
