Come holiday season, there’s a lot of hubbub about joy and all that jazz. But here at Columbia the first two weeks of December are decidedly unjoyous times. With visions of forthcoming finals dancing in our heads, at this point in the year, many of us have had it with academia. But today, Bwog brings […]
If you’re trying to study in Butler right now, you probably already know that there’s a giant children’s reading party going on out on the lawns–it’s part of the Times-sponsored Great Children’s Read, and a zillion tiny people have turned out to ensnare you on your way to midterms purgatory. If you’re able to escape, […]
Has your weekend been lacking a certain cultural, athletic or alcoholic satisfaction? If so, check out Bwog’s mid-weekend guide to the weekend update. Cultural Danscores by Ofelia Loret De Mola Shakespeare’s Ophelia was not much of a badass. Rather than sticking it to the man, she let the man stick it to her. Not so […]
During the onslaught of the academic year, many students forgo newly released books for required reading or problem sets, making summer the perfect time to catch up on leisure reading. In a menial attempt to recapture the spirit of the literary salons during the 17th and 18th century, Bwog is introducing a book club for […]
Though most of us are bogged down with midterms and papers, Bwog writer Hannah Goldfield provides some alternative reading. Ducking your head and barreling through the cloud of cigarette smoke outside Butler might be worth it tonight. Act fast and you can snag a copy of poli-lit-culture journal n+1’s latest pamphlet, distributed, guerrilla-style, throughout the […]
Can the apocalypse be funny? Ashraya Gupta, Bwog’s Blue Notebooks correspondent (and member herself), summarizes novelist Matthew Sharpe’s recent visit to Morningside and reviews his latest, Jamestown. Not the ex-bassist for Weezer, but Matthew Sharpe, author of the best post-annihilation novel this side of the Book of Revelations—well, maybe. Matthew Sharpe has the kind of […]
Yesterday, Bwog staffer Lucy Tang sat in on the Future of Book Reviews panel and realized that all Columbia arguments center around elitism. Panelists: Steve Wasserman (former editor of the Los Angeles Book Review) Peter Osnos (founder and editor at large of PublicAffairs) Elizabeth Sifton (editor and senior vice president of Farrar, Straus & Giroux) […]
In which Bwog freelancer Rob Trump, who brought you a Chabon review and enlightened July 4 commentary, learns to love America. Forgive me if this seems insensitive, but for the last few years I have been thoroughly sick of hearing, talking, and thinking about 9/11. I was tired of pop-sociology articles and works of art […]
Previously, on the Joy Luck Book Club: Marisha Pessl’s merits as author and as hottie were debated. In this week’s episode, certified hottie Dave Eggers presents What is the What, and the J.L.B.C. convenes, gin cocktails in hand, to their secret clubhouse somewhere in the outer boroughs… Reading Rainbow! Dan: Dave Eggers is famous for […]
In which Bwog freelancer Justin Goncalves reviews the newest egg from an odd duck. Before reading No one belongs here more than you, I fell in love with Miranda July. I was prepared to steal her away from her boyfriend (Thumbsucker director Mike Millis) and live with her in Portland. She would stay upstairs, […]
In which recovering V-Show writer Rob Trump reflects on Michael Chabon’s latest effort. In 2002, Michael Chabon lashed out against the modern short story, claiming that publications like The New Yorker are filled with nothing but the “quotidian, plotless, moment-of-truth revelatory story.” He did this in a McSweeney’s compendium, no less, giving the hipster literati […]
For most, summer is a season for skimpy bikinis and cold Coronas, or whatever those zany teenagers do these days. Along with such activities, Bwog staffers Lucy Tang and Daniel D’Addario will while away these months of freedom in (partial) devotion to literary pursuits, and then discussing these books in a nifty little feature called “Joy Luck […]
Looking to pick up some summer reading? The woman at the desk of Partners and Crime, in the East Village, told Bwog reporter Emma Jacobs that Manhattan’s bookshop scene’s just not what it used to be–but we didn’t believe her. You can still find some of the best bookshops around hanging in on Manhattan to […]
Sometimes, when you feel like everything in life is passing its judgment on you, it helps to do a little judging yourself. The following is Bwog correspondent CML’s pilgrimage to the Bookstore in search of superficial literary gratification. Putting an iPod through the wash and receiving one of those “What are you doing with your […]
First, find a partner and align the soles of your feet together in Bokononist ritual: Kurt Vonnegut dies at age 84. “Blessed are the merciful” in a courtroom? “Blessed are the peacemakers” in the Pentagon? Give me a break!”- Cold Turkey “Before you kill somebody, make absolutely sure he isn’t well connected.” – Slaughterhouse V […]
