- Betsy Bird reviews the film adaption of The Boy in Striped Pajamas, and I’ve no doubt the review is better than both the book and movie in question: While many children’s books have sought to teach young readers about Hitler’s greatest atrocity, few have been quite as divisive as John Boyne’s 2006 novel The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. This novel has caused some readers to sing its praises to the heavens while others desire nothing more than to rake out their own eyeballs after a chapter or two.
- Holly and Justine are editing a zombie vs. unicorns anthology.
- "Magic and the Brain: How Magicians ‘Trick’ the Mind" at Scientific American. Yay. (Thanks, sweetie.)
- It makes me happy when insanely rich people do stuff like this, and by this I mean Madeleine Pickens saving more than 30,000 wild horses and burros from euthanasia. The pictures of these horses are AMAZING. (Someday I will so live our my childhood dream to go to Chincoteague Island.)
- Maria Tatar reviews Laura Miller’s new book about C.S. Lewis and the Narnia books (which I greatly enjoyed) in Bookforum.
- My hero Lewis Hyde profiled in the NYT, with some tantalizing talk about the book he’s working on (finished with? almost?) about the cultural commonspace. Can’t. Wait.
- The Winter Blog Blast Tour continues. I just read Leila’s fabulous interview with Kathleen Duey, who has turned in the sequel to Skin Hunger. (Woo!) On to Finding Wonderland’s chat with D.M. Cornish. Then maybe to Colleen’s interview with Ellen Datlow?
