Once a week we will be posting a round up of links we thought were of interest during the week. I hope you enjoy them.
A great look at why Indie’s matter. Bill Morris is very cool.

A review of one of my favorite books of the year. The Quick by Lauren Owen.
New York City in books. Should we go back there as a group? Yes, please.

George Saunders recommends short stories to aliens on Oprah’s website. No, seriously.
Over at Melville House Sal Robinson writes about the task of editing a collection of interviews with James Baldwin.
