  • It’s Hillary Clinton’s summer reading list. (The Strategist)
  • An interesting, funny piece about Spectra, a hoax poetry movement that accidentally went legitimate. (Atlas Obscura)
  • And in the interest of promoting female directors, here’s the trailer for I Do…Until I Don’t, which looks like a fun little romantic comedy about marriage and has a winning cast, from Lake Bell. (Jezebel)
  • This is depressing. (Time)

    Wow, Hill’s reading The View from Flyover Country?! I give her credit for that. I tried to read it back in November when I was following Kendzior’s Twitter (which, I had to stop because it was freaking me out so much I could hardly function), but couldn’t get past the second chapter. There are a lot of important things that could be said about life in the Midwest from a sociopolitical standpoint, but imho she relies too much on certain Lefty cliches to really get there.

    There’s a great tradition of poetry hoaxes. Here’s a piece my husband wrote about the Ern Malley hoax:

    I’m a writer. I write about food and poetry though for a variety of reasons I haven’t written much lately. I teach “Food Narratives” at the New School. It’s great fun!
