Q&A:
DAN RUBINSTEIN

Baillie

"When walking or writing, you have a starting point and an end point, and you donít necessarily take a linear route from one to the other. The best narratives, and the best journeys, meander. Itís fun to wander down tangential side paths, even if you have a specific destination in mind; youíre going to get there ultimately, and will be richer for the experiences you have along the way."

REVIEW: THE WILD OATS PROJECT

kane

"An unsatisfied wife has a year of incredible sex with other partners Ė while still remaining married to her husband. It seems like the perfect compromise between love, stability, adventure, and variety. Except this story is not a glossed-over, made-for-rom-com, straight-to-DVD blockbuster. It's a real year in the life of Robin Rinaldi: candid, heartbreaking, and honest. Robin bares all (literally) and pours out her heart in this fascinating and emotional must-read."" READ MORE


REVIEW: SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED

kane

"Digesting Jon Ronson's new book... it occurs to me that it's each other that we really have to be more immediately and tangibly weary of. Yes the government is watching us, but we're also watching us, and I'd hazard to say that we're somewhat less responsible and more trigger-happy than our Western government. Collectively, we seem to be crouched in wait online, in our own social crows nest, ready to point out and punish any transgression that appears in our crosshairs. No mistake, from spelling and grammar flubs to unpopular political purviews, shall go unpunished." READ MORE


I CAN HAS WEBSITE?

kane

After years of reading about the Internet in books and newspapers, we decided we'd finally check it out for ourselves. We liked the place so much – though some of its denizens seem really angry about something – that we bought some land, and for a while now we've been building a full-on website.
