We ourselves neglected to note his passing.

"Though Juan Rulfo’s published work did not amount to much more than three hundred pages, those are 'as durable,' Gabriel García Márquez said, 'as the pages that have come down to us from Sophocles.'" Ariel Dorfman on Rulfo, "arguably Mexico’s greatest writer," who would have turned 100 last year.

Engaging revival of Terence McNally’s 1971 near-monologue comedic memory rant of “Where Has Tommy Flowers Gone.” David Gow is charismatic as the dreamer & schemer in a time of great flux, one in a long line of fast-talking, sex-crazed, man-child rebels without a cause. Several set pieces stand out including Gow imagining himself as a child meeting James Dean, where Gow plays Dean to a tee (pun intended), and a stunningly funny and pathos-filled daydream where he plays Marilyn Monroe, the happy birthday Mr President boozy and insecure but still vivacious Marilyn. #offbroadway #theater

We were torn when we saw the show in late Spring. Humor, brazen reconstruction, at times haunting, close to the melancholy that David Salle refers to in his appreciative essay. But on reading this piece I may have to reconsider my initial overall nonplussed reaction. A memory-based rethink could be in order.

Sarah Kerr on the feminist backstory of Wonder Woman: “Hiding in her kitschy story lines and scant costume were allusions to and visual tropes from old struggles for women’s freedom, and an occasional framing of battles like the right to a living wage and basic equality that have yet to be decisively won.”

David Grossman has been awarded this year’s Man Booker International Prize for his novel A Horse Walks into a Bar, about an aging Israeli stand-up comedian. In his review, Stephen Greenblatt called the book “unbearably bleak,” and writes that it enters into a “Kafka-zone where tragedy and comedy are braided together.”

Where Anti-Tax Fervor Means ‘All Services Will Cease’

Yeah, free public libraries (an amazing and incredibly influential American public institution), like public schools and firehouses, need taxes to stay in business. So, goodbye, libraries, source of a free education for so many generations of Americans...
