A Closer Look

July 15, 2023

This week’s authors are keen observers of American culture. For antic humor there is the second installment of a prize-winning writer’s foray into crime writing. One of our finest short fiction writers has released a collection of stories examining the fallout of the appalling 2017 Charlottesville rally. A work of nonfiction celebrates a New Yorker contributor’s life well-lived in the service of writing. And we have a wonderful memoir by a man losing his sight, a fitting title as we mark National Disabilities Month.

Happy reading,
