In this week's gabfest, DoubleX's Emily Bazelon and Hanna Rosin, along with The New Yorker's Margaret Talbot, discuss the 28-year-old Virginia candidate for Congress, Krystal Ball, who has become a feminist heroine, the amazing phone call Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, placed to Anita Hill, and the appalling behavior of a Yale fraternity.
The DoubleX Gabfest weekly "coffee talk" endorsements:
Emily Bazelon: Nicole Krauss' new novel, Great House, which we will discuss in our next DoubleX audio book club.

Margaret Talbot: Catfish, the better version of The Social Network.
