Innocents and Others, Spiotta's new novel delivers in the most personal, least high tech way, comprising notes, lists, screenplay cuts, and reveries. She writes one of the most tender, but most explicit love scenes I've ever read. Along the way there are explorations of the meaning -- and pain -- of devotion to our art or passions, the importance of our senses, how we account for ourselves, our impulses to keep secrets and to confess them.
The characters in "Zero K" gamble on immortality, and risk losing a rich life in the process.

I got back to Boston last night, choosing to fly on Thanksgiving Day to take advantage of the lowered airfare. I had a bus ticket to New York City the next morning, but plans fell through leaving me not all together disappointed.
When I heard that Amazon was doing a miniseries based on Philip K. Dick's Hugo-winning novel from the Sixties, I realized that it had been sitting on my shelves between DeLillo and Didion for years. Once I picked up the 1992 paperback (with a weird cover) and dusted it off, I couldn't put it down.

In an A-Sides interview filmed at Primary Wave in New York City earlier this month, Baio explained the process behind his album -- moving to London shaped it, whether he cares if you refer to his work as a "side project," and painted a picture of his upbringing in Bronxville, NY.
If there's one thing I know for sure, it's what makes a good book. Sure, I haven't written any of my own any time lately but I sure have read a lot.
This is not a "50 best books of 2014" list. It is my personal and idiosyncratic list of books I found interesting and/or fun to read (or in a few cases, re-read) and that I think others will enjoy, too.
I've recently been rereading some novels especially meaningful to me, some for a second time, some for a third, trying to figure out why they resonate. For a writer, it's important work.
The similarities with contemporary football are rather striking: Football is indubitably a game that is important, just witness
On my first day at Tin House (and during cocktail hour), I anxiously asked Williams what she was reading/what I should be reading. Don DeLillo's Point Omega, she told me.

As one would expect from Cronenberg, there are sudden moments of shocking violence to go with the moments of unsexy sex. None of it will distract you from the fact that this limo, like the whole enterprise titled Cosmopolis, is going nowhere.
David Cronenberg's new film Cosmopolis depicts a world so skewed by capitalism that rats are about to become the unit of currency. The shots are masterful. But what makes the film brilliant is the startling dialogue from Don DeLillo's novel.
