  • A Physical Public Square in the Digital Age (The Atlantic)
    LONDON—London’s Hyde Park may be one of the city’s largest parks, but it’s also one of its most typical. Across its expansive 350 acres can be found park goers doing the usual park things : weekend picnics, pickup frisbee games, or bike rides along its winding paths. There’s an art gallery, a café, and a lake for swimming and paddleboating. And on its northeastern corner, every Sunday afternoon, there is something that looks a lot like chaos. But it’s not entirely that. In reality, it’s just a (...)

  • The Most Honest Book About Climate Change Yet (The Atlantic)
    Authors like to flatter themselves by imagining for their work an “ideal reader,” a cherubic presence endowed with bottomless generosity, the sympathy of a parent, and the wisdom of, well, the authors themselves. In Carbon Ideologies, William T. Vollmann imagines for himself the opposite : a murderously hostile reader who sneers at his arguments, ridicules his feeblemindedness, scorns his pathetic attempts at ingratiation. Vollmann can’t blame this reader, whom he addresses regularly (...)
