Cuckolds and Commutes: Happy Monday!

May 21, 2012 | by

  • This writers’ workshop is inspired by the 7-train commute.
  • Feel-good alert! A good samaritan bails out an endangered Vermont bookmobile.
  • One affair, two sides of the story: when both cuckold and cad give their versions, and, by the way, the latter is John le Carré.
  • The Marriage Plot, coming to a multiplex near you. (Okay, maybe not a multiplex.)
  • Jay McInerney: “I was fortunate to get a lot of mileage out of my vices.”

      Jock goes cuckoo at the end of TUNES OF GLORY, also known as MEN IN SKIRTS.

      The first link merely leads to a photo. I hope there’s an article about it somewhere, as the premise seems interesting.

      The link is fixed, acorresponder. Thanks for letting us know it wasn’t working!

      The story is fine, but the picture is really all that’s needed: how it civilizes any human space to see people reading or writing!

      Person With Book is opposite of Broken Windows.
