★★★★★ Author: Max Porter Publisher: Faber & Faber   “Moving on, as a concept, is for stupid people, because any sensible person knows grief is a long-term project.” Grief is the Thing with Feathers is the story of a father and his two young sons, who are adrift in loss after the death of their […]

★★★ Author: Yewande Omotoso Publisher: Chatto & Windus   There is something precious, but disconcerting, about being placed in the head of an eighty-year-old woman as she goes about her life. There are two elderly women facing off in this restrained South African story: Hortensia, a black designer, recently widowed, versus Marion, a white architect, […]

There were no questions, just a careful click of the door. Shut up, we can’t wake them! She held my hand in the blue-black: prized paintings, antique vases— prerequisites for any Dio Girl. The night spilled carelessly in lines along her skin; I was far from home.

I had been anticipating this moment for a long time. Ever since I saw the unopened box in her bedroom—I could not contain my excitement. I knew what was inside, but I had to wait two weeks until I could see it. It was the opening night of freunde sind künstler, a group show of […]

He’s reluctantly agreed to watch a stand-up comedy show with me, and I am hoping to convert him into a theatre fanatic. As we enter […]

★★★★★ “I’m so sorry, Red. They took your voice. I couldn’t stop them.”   Step into the shoes of Red, a displaced chanteuse from Cloudbank—the iridescent cyberpunk metropolis in which Transistor takes place. The city is beautifully reminiscent of an art deco space station, a blue-green paradise that glows primarily with accents of white, red, […]

★★★★½ Director: Drew Goddard   Tell me if you’ve heard this one before: a group of college kids decide to go on a fun getaway to a cabin in the woods except horrific, violent, and fatal events ensue. Of course the answer is yes, because it’s a premise that has been done a million times […]
