This Week in Words – May 4

The New Yorker has some recommendations for this month’s upcoming book releases. It’s like beach reads for book nerds.

Stephen Soderbergh and a Twitter novella. Insert an audible sigh and of course he is here, please.

This is not really book related at all, but the story caught my eye and it is written down. It counts. Cannibalism in Jamestown? For shame, early settlers.

Old-timey librarians looking awesome, which is just how they do.

Writing advice in the form of somewhat obscure, possibly out-of-context quotes from the likes of Vonnegut, Hemingway, Bradbury, Steinbeck, and others.

Fiction recommendation this week comes from wigleaf: Bess Winter’s “How Do You Deal With the Horribly Cruel Things People Have Said to You Throughout Your Life?” It’s a story about people made out of walnuts. Favorite line? “Also, tiny hats.”
