Lit Life:
1 August 2013

¶ Although their lives were never in probable danger, both Caleb Crain and Choire Sicha sound like survivors, even if they don’t think they are. Books to follow. (Pacific Standard; via Caleb Crain’s blog — which we learned about from Norman Rush’s nice review in the NYRB — Steamboats Are Ruining Everything)

Choire: Yeah, I just think there’s this thing about being in New York when you’re young. And you moved here when?

Caleb: I moved here in ‘91.

Choire: I moved here in ’92—‘92 or ‘93.

You were very young.
We were young! And it was terrible in New York. But there’s that sense of … we moved here at a much better time than it is now to live here. Thoughts?

Caleb: It was a very different time. It certainly felt more authentic in some ways.

    Woah! I’m really loinvg the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that perfect balance between usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!
