Inadvertently, here’s Good Reads #35: the I ❤ Canada edition… love my country.
#welcomerefugees — I have been so proud and humbled to work on this file.
Trudeau’s Canada, again. Excellent longform from last weekend’s New York Times Magazine.
How ’bout a little more big American journalism loving on PM Trudeau? This time, in the January 2016 issue of Vogue.
Just in time for our 150th birthday, a Canadian typeface to merge the country’s many languages.
And on a lighter note, much love for Toronto’s fatter-than-usual squirrels.
Long form: The best book I will read in 2015 arrived in December. Lauren Groff’s Fates and Furies was an ambitious, brilliant and layered read. I did not glimpse at a single review before I stepped into this book — and I hope everyone who reads it does so with the same virgin eyes — it was splendid to have the story collapse upon and expand into itself without any preconceived expectations. So: read the book. Then — and only then — read the (rightly) praise-laden reviews.
