On Joan Crawford Protests: A Short History of 'New Yorker' Corrections

I enjoyed this very much. I remember the Hemingway profile by Lillian Ross "How Do You Like It Now, Gentlemen?" which I was sure was just made up or totally inaccurate because I was pretty sure Ross was drinking with Hem the whole time. Turns out it was mostly true. That's just fine.

On Today Only: The Awl Is Auditioning New Commenters!

@chrissth I auditioned just at the time the Gold Star Motel was being retired and Commie-ism was taking hold. I sent in a couple of comments to get approved and nothing happened...for months. Then I sent the same comments in --on totally unrelated posts -- and I was approved.

On Sympathy For Jonathan Franzen

@dntsqzthchrmn "LIKE!" But for novels too! I have been haunted in a good way by Solo Faces and A Sport And A Pastime most of my penis-having life. Er...not quite what I meant.

On Sympathy For Jonathan Franzen

They get way madder at Jonathan Safran Foer. I like James Salter for best living novelist.

On Paul Auster Is 65

The Trilogy is pretty great. Married to a novelist who is terrific too, Siri Hustvedt.
