    Vladimir Sorokin’s Absurdist Excess

    Even the Russian author’s most sincere explorations tend toward brutal deadpan satire, cartoonish extremes of violence, comically unsexy sex, and flatulence.

    Ben Ehrenreich

  • Israel’s Willful Blindness

    Two films explore why the Israeli peace movement collapsed, and, taken together, might advance you toward an answer.

    Stuart Klawans

  • The Trials of Aaron Swartz

    A collection of Swartz’s writings is a record of a mind thinking, beautifully, against itself.

    Ava Kofman

  • In Praise of Lawrence Alloway

    The former Nation art critic was a great intellectual resource among art writers in the 1960s and ’70s, and a revival of his work is under way.
