In this edition of the Gabfest, Hanna Rosin, and Jessica Grose of DoubleX, along with Slate's Jack Shafer, discuss Liz Cheney's campaign against the al-Qaida Seven, Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar win, and a new study that says Americans are too tired for sex.
The DoubleX Gabfest weekly "coffee talk" endorsements:
Hanna's pick: Amanda Fortini's New York magazine feature, "Lines, Please," on the way plastic surgery is changing acting.
Jessica's pick: Janelle Brown's new novel, This Is Where We Live, about a young artist couple struggling to support themselves and save their marriage in Los Angeles. Jessica also recommends Brown's first novel, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything, about an unhappy Silicon Valley mother and her two daughters.
