I wrote this piece for the Globe on author Laura Dave, she’s great. The Divorce Party and London is the Best City in America are two wonderful comfort books for me, and they should be for you too. Read ’em!
Here’s another piece on the movie In Search of a Midnight Kiss. Enjoyable movie, would watch again! What maybe didn’t make it in fully to the piece was director Alex Holdridge’s love of Okkervil River (which we share), but it is total, and it was fun to talk about how there’s a lot of emotion and good writing in the music, which can be inspiring in other arenas.
