DoubleX endorsements:

Noreen loves A Time to be Born, a novel about cynical New Yorkers written decades before Woody Allen filled that role.

Hanna says you should read the New Yorker piece on the “Truman Show phenomenon,” or how paranoid delusions of schizophrenia sufferers has shifted to reflect our reality show-obsessed world.

Dan read Jenny Diski’s piece in the London Review of Books in defense of a pop star whose name he can’t remember (it was Liz Jones).
