Covering Sandy

While I'm not surprised at the Manhattan-centric nature of the cover of New York Magazine's forthcoming issue, I must admit the photograph by Iwan Baan is exceptional. It certainly doesn't summarize the impacts of Hurricane Sandy, but it does a great job showing how a chunk of the island lost power for close to a week.

Book Briefs #12: Conversations

"Book Briefs" are an ongoing series of posts with two- or three-sentence first-hand descriptions of some of the numerous books that make their way into my library. These briefs are not full-blown reviews, but they are a way to share more books worthy of attention than can find their way into reviews on my daily or weekly pages.
