This Friday I point you to some worthwhile reading around the blogosphere:
1. If you missed this interview with Spike Jones, Dave Eggers and Maurice Sendak in Newsweek about the film version of that childhood classic, Where The Wild Things Are, it’s a must. Sendak is priceless!
2. One of my favorite new (to me) blogs is Katy Keim’s Book Snob. Her detailed and funny reviews make you want to leap out of your chair and buy them. On the strength of her latest review, I’ve already put The Last of Her Kind on my list.
4. In honor of its 150th birthday, The British Psychological Society’s Reader’s Digest invited some of the world’s leading psychologists to share – in 150 words – one nagging thing that they still don’t understand about themselves. Brilliant! (Hat Tip: Freakonomics.)
5. If you haven’t seen it (and call still stomach reading anything about Roman Polanski), here’s Calvin Trillin’s hilarious satirical poem in The Nation.
6. Another beautiful meditation on middle age by Judith Warner in the New York Times. (Quick middle age quiz: What is her title a reference to?)
7. My take on what American Conservatives could learn from British Conservatives.
