There’s a perception that books are more authoritative than journalism. But a viral, painful author interview this morning is a reminder that magazine stories are rigorously fact-checked, but authors of non-fiction books usually have to arrange for fact-checking privately.

It’s supposed to be the best place in Paris because when you’re in it you don’t have to see it.

But you are young, blameless and doing God’s work. Be not afraid.

I mean even a rank amateur knows Oscar Wilde went to Reading Gaol but didn’t die there. (Wallpaper? Anybody?) The history of Victorian England is vast, deeply and widely studied - Oh shut up, Self! Let’s move on.

Profound. The moment of the boy hiding in the bathroom; the honest attempt to speak openly to the abuser years later; that man’s ability to con US; the earnest language of Mormonism and its dangerous imperative of forgiveness ... in 25 minutes a world.

I think. is on the money, although no oorts (office shorts) - the men have a uniform and the only bare skin is face and hands. The women are sometimes in light dresses, no hose, open toe sandals. There must be a wardrobe accords or the problem will never be solved.

Certainly I admire your generosity. But what hubris to arrive at a huge, shocking discovery about Victorian England - one of the most studied times/places in history - and not rigorously check it out with scholars.

In her early fifties discovers a source of joy more profound than even second wave feminism and describes it, at length, in her non-blockbuster work, Vagina. It is a tribute to husband #2 who is apparently really bringing it, and to the organ itself. It is ridiculed piteously.

Junior level administrator gives her an hour of soothing attention, Naomi occupies her office for two more hours, and then... goes home. Writes despairingly that she doesn’t know “how to keep Yale students safe.” Harold Bloom is by then gaga in assisted living.
