  • Why Amazon Traded a Big Concert for Prime Day Mini-Musicals With Billie Eilish, H.E.R. and Kid Cudi June 17, 2021
    Even if some music fans may be burned out on straight performance livestreams after 16 months, no one at Amazon will take the bait to knock the format — they’ve used it before, and they may well end up using it again. But for this Amazon Prime Day, at least, there was a clear mandate […]

  • Check Out Amazon Music’s Wild Prime Day Show Gift Box June 17, 2021
    Back in the day, one of the great perks of being a music writer was “Free CDs and Tees” (t-shirts). In recent years, it’s been other forms of swag — far beyond just t-shirts and hoodies, we’ve gotten everything from booze and blankets to coasters and cakes. And although last week’s George Harrison promotional gnomes […]

    A year ago, in the thick of the coronavirus pandemic, Pharrell Williams braved air travel to head to his home state of Virginia and stand beside Governor Ralph Northam as he called for Juneteenth, marking the day in 1865 (June 19) when the last slaves in Texas learned of the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, to be […]

  • How US Abortion Politics Distorts Women’s Lives in Conflict Zones
    Rwenyawawa hospital was packed. Hundreds of women, most of them with babies slung across their backs or weighing heavily in their arms, crowded under the tin roofs of the vast open-air waiting areas, standing by with the resigned patience of people who are used to waiting. Uganda is home to more refugees than any other […]
  • On a Quest to Know Everything
    The July 1, 2021 issue features “As American as Family Separation,” Hari Kunzru’s review of two books about immigration politics and the detaining of migrant children.

    “Fotoclubismo: Brazilian Modernist Photography, 1946–1964,” currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art, presents some sixty black-and-white photographs by members of the amateur Foto Cine Clube Bandeirante (FCCB) in São Paulo. Created in 1939, the club not only served as a social haven for upper-middle-class amateur photography buffs, but it also became a competitive […]
  • In Her Own Voice
    When I watch footage of Lorraine Hansberry—a striking enunciator and the fiery and brilliantly self-possessed Black woman best known for her play A Raisin in the Sun—I sometimes forget the sense of belatedness I felt when I wrote about her life in Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry (2018). I […]

    In February the Chinese leader, Xi Jinping, held a gala reception at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing to announce a momentous accomplishment: the elimination of extreme rural poverty in China. The grand event—in an enormous ballroom with hundreds of dignitaries flown in from around the country—was carefully timed to kick off a […]

Annually you die,each year in a different manner.And this year I’m thinkingof your enormous gut: it was exhausting to tieyour brown shoes.And your panting heart,I heard it today in a […]
  • Imperial Delusions
    In the summer of 1932 Eric Williams arrived in England from the British colony of Trinidad. Like most of the island’s population, his family was so poor that he and his eleven siblings had rarely tasted milk. But from his earliest youth his father, a disillusioned postal clerk, obsessively pressured him to achieve academic success. […]
  • The Triumph of Mutabilitie
    The Faerie Queene is one of the longest, and by many accounts slowest, poems in the English language but it gets off to a vigorous start, with a clatter of hoofbeats, the glint of armor, and a shiver of unease: A Gentle Knight was pricking on the plaine,Ycladd in mightie armes and silver shield,Wherein old […]
  • Reckoning with Nazism in Occupied Norway
    To the Editors: In “Planning an Aryan Paradise” [NYR, May 13], Martin Filler writes about Nazi Germany’s plans for occupied Norway (1940–1945). His prime focus is how the Nazi Weltanschauung manifested itself in buildings, visual arts, and urban planning in Norway during the occupation. However, when he makes forays into the general history of Norway, […]
  • Forging an Early Black Politics
    At the core of the latest national reckoning over race is an incontrovertible fact: the Civil War killed slavery, but it did not kill entrenched racism and Black subjugation. One historical interpretation, lavishly publicized and increasingly in vogue, blames this not only on the tenacity of the defeated slaveholding South but also on the racism […]
  • Dickinson’s Improvisations
    “‘It is finished’ can never be said of us,” Emily Dickinson once wrote, and certainly there is nothing finished about Emily Dickinson. Since her death in 1886, an army of poets, playwrights, biographers, filmmakers, cartoonists, editors, and literary gumshoes have celebrated her singular, heart-stopping poems while trying to decide what her intentions must have been […]
  • A Haunted Patrimony
    Most ages and places have had their iconic forms of self-display. Today we have the carefully curated social media page, with its endless series of aptly titled “selfies.” Early modern Europe had the daily pageant of court society, with its graceful, witty, professedly nonchalant aristocrats who had every muscle under tight control and every piece […]
  • The Landscapes Inside Us
    It is a little-known fact that limpets are brilliant navigators. Renowned for their ability to hold fast, they are surprisingly mobile. When submerged by the incoming tide, limpets set out on a slow journey across the intertidal boulders of their habitat. They move using a single muscular foot, rather as snails do, and deploy a […]
  • Dostoevsky and His Demons
    How should one narrate the life of a great writer? Joseph Frank’s five-volume biography of Dostoevsky, now supplemented by his Lectures on Dostoevsky, revivified the form by situating the novelist within the ideological struggles of his day. The many fascinating primary sources about Dostoevsky’s life inspired Thomas Marullo to experiment with a new kind of […]
  • India’s Streaming Auteurs
    My brief love affair with Bollywood—India’s mainstream Hindi-language cinema—began when I was ten, in 1994, with the release of a film called Hum Aapke Hain Koun..! (What Am I to You?). A crowd-pleasing three-and-a-half-hour love story set during an endless and elaborate Hindu wedding, it became the highest-grossing Bollywood movie up to that time, earning […]
  • More Than Accomplices
    One morning in the late spring of 1996, while reporting on the aftermath of the conflict in Bosnia, I was filming in a churchyard in Pale, the wartime capital of the Bosnian Serb statelet of Republika Srpska, when I noticed a rather dowdy older woman walking up the path to pay respects to a grave.

  • Selfies from Hell
    In Martin Amis’s novel Other People: A Mystery Story (1981), a woman with amnesia comes across the works of Jane Austen. “The same thing happened in every book,” she discovers. “The girl liked a bad man who seemed good, then liked a good man who had seemed bad, whom she duly married.” There are, needless […]

  • The Broken Promise of Retirement
    After almost thirty-eight years as a technical assistant at a Detroit public library and six years of retirement, Barbara Yokom found herself, in 2018, stocking shelves at big box stores. She was sixty-three. The heavy lifting was a daily difficulty, and she hadn’t expected to be working at all. For decades at the library, doing […]
  • Grievance Conservatives Are Here to Stay
    The current struggle over the place of religion in American public life presents a paradox. At least by one measure, the country is less religious than it has ever been: Gallup reported recently that for the first time in its eighty years of opinion research, fewer than half of all Americans hold formal membership in […]
  • Blue Bloods and Brownshirts
    In its March 26, 2020, issue, The New York Review published a fascinating article by David Motadel entitled “What Do the Hohenzollerns Deserve?” Motadel colorfully described the ongoing attempt of the Hohenzollern family (descendants of Kaiser Wilhelm II, who was deposed in 1918) since German reunification to recover property and artworks seized by the Soviets […]
  • As American as Family Separation
    In July 2019 Elora Mukherjee, the director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, testified before Congress about conditions at a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facility in Clint, Texas, that housed migrant children who had been separated from their parents: At Clint, I saw children who were dirty. They could not wash […]

  • ‘Reality Rebellion’
    1. Workmen have stripped the barbed wire from around the Capitol. The shattered windows have been replaced. The blood has been scrubbed away. And from the halls of the grand white-domed building the National Guard troops have at last departed. The coup that did not succeed in overturning the election goes unpunished. More than four […]
  • A Proclivity for the Unknown
    In the Review’s July 1, 2021 issue, astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan reviews three new books about matter: Katia Moskovitch’s Neutron Stars, which addresses the composition of the incredibly dense remains of collapsed stars; Katie Mack’s The End of Everything, on what may happen during the universe’s inevitable demise, and Franck Wilczek’s Fundamentals, about the basic physical […]

    The physicist Richard Feynman, in a lecture to undergraduates at the California Institute of Technology in 1961, posed a question and then answered it: If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generations of creatures, what statement would contain the most information […]
  • Cracks in the Israeli Consensus
    Looking back on the latest round of fighting in Gaza, one can’t escape the grim sense of déjà vu. How many such rounds have there been? I can’t remember. Worse, eerie and compulsive repetition suits the way many, perhaps most, Israelis—including, it seems, the higher echelons of the army and intelligence services—tend to think about […]
  • ‘Democracy Is at Stake’
    In official Democratic Party circles, Marc Erik Elias is the go-to attorney for legal issues relating to elections, voting rights, and redistricting—on his client list are the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Governors Association, and the Democratic Congressional and Senatorial Campaign Committees. And this has been true of Elias, who is now fifty-two, for years. […]
  • ‘Undine’ Retold
    The German director Christian Petzold is a maestro of modern (or modernized) myths. Previous films have reworked James M. Cain’s archetypal crime novel The Postman Always Rings Twice, Edgar G. Ulmer’s fatalistic noir Detour, the Z-movie cult film Carnival of Souls and, less directly, the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. His latest, Undine, is an […]
  • The True Cost of Living
    In the June 10, 2021 issue, Francesca Mari reviews two new books about gun violence: Alex Kotlowitz’s An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago and Thomas Abt’s Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence. “As calls to defund the police grew louder after [George] Floyd’s death,” Mari writes, “many people began to ask: Could the Great American Crime Decline […]
  • Open Letter: Release Otero Alcántara
    To President Miguel Díaz-Canel: We the undersigned condemn the detention of the Black artist Luis Manuel Otero Alcántara, a leader of the San Isidro Movement, a group of Cuban artists, journalists, and academics that campaigns for freedom of expression. Otero Alcántara has been held under police guard in Havana’s Calixto Garcia hospital since May 2, 2021. […]
  • Cummings’s Last Stand
    When Benedict Cumberbatch was cast as the hero of Brexit, a 2019 movie about the 2016 vote to take Britain out of the European Union, it wasn’t to play Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage—the politicians synonymous with Brexit—but rather, Dominic Cummings, a behind-the-scenes strategist from the Vote Leave campaign. Cummings—middle-aged and mousy, with thinning hair—made […]
  • Theater, Politics, and Critic
    The New York Review’s current issue (June 10, 2021) features a new essay by Fintan O’Toole, “The King of Little England,” which recounts the ways Britain’s prime minister, Boris Johnson, is now plagued by the same disruptive forces he pandered to in order to engineer his ascent to power. As with his superb earlier characterization […]

That day, Hong Kong’s people came out in their tens of thousands, to protest the proposed Extradition Bill, which would allow the territory to detain and transfer citizens to mainland China. Hoikei was there in the city’s southern Kowloon district of Yau Ma Tei by herself (she […]
  • Jean Stafford’s Delicious Debut
    In a 1941 letter to a friend, Jean Stafford wrote: Proust outstrips everyone. He wears me out physically. His intensity demands complementary energy which in me is limited, but I know of no intellectual exercise so rewarding as reading him carefully…. That is, no exercise performed with another novelist unless it is James who in […]
  • Alone Together in Taipei
    In 1997 the Taiwanese film and theater director Tsai Ming-liang premiered a movie called The River. It starred Lee Kang-sheng, who has had major parts in all eleven of Tsai’s feature films, as a young man living with his parents who develops agonizing, mysterious neck pains after visiting a film set and agreeing to play […]
  • Contagious Constitutions
    “We need to broaden and diversify our gaze,” Linda Colley asserts in The Gun, the Ship, and the Pen. Her dazzling global history does just that, pulling away the blinkers of national stories, widening the focus, and showing—as the current pandemic has done—how interconnected all our lives and interests are. In this bold, packed account […]
  • Another New World
    The gist, the true essence, of Claudio Lomnitz’s Nuestra América is expressed not in its rather anodyne title, which simply means “Our America” in Spanish, but in its enigmatic subtitle: “My Family in the Vertigo of Translation.” A reader might wonder what exactly is being translated—another book? a stack of letters?—and how that process could […]

    Never have the literary habits of so many readers been determined by so few people. Publishing is more centralized than it has ever been—with the proposed acquisition of Simon and Schuster by Penguin Random House, what was once the Big 5 would become a Big 4; the names of the genteel publishers of yore are […]
  • What Price Is Right?
    What is a human life worth? That is an impossibly abstract question, so let’s ask a more concrete one. Suppose that while walking home at night, Mary Jones, a forty-year-old doctor, was killed by a negligent driver who was texting and not looking at the road. Suppose that Jones’s widower and children sued the driver, […]
  • The Gourmand’s Way
    If American cuisine has a patron saint, it is James Beard. As early as the 1940s and 1950s, when frozen food and other convenience products were popular, Beard advocated the three elements so commonly cited among chefs today that they’ve become a menu mantra: fresh, local, and seasonal. He founded a cooking school, wrote essays […]
  • Far from the Realm of the Real
    In 1890 Lafcadio Hearn arrived in Japan on a reporting assignment for Harper’s New Monthly Magazine. Just shy of forty years old, he was a popular journalist and novelist, his work marked by a hatred of modern industrial life and a fascination with what he called “survivals”—traditions or folktales that he hoped would provide a […]
  • Sentenced by Algorithm
    Is it fair for a judge to increase a defendant’s prison time on the basis of an algorithmic score that predicts the likelihood that he will commit future crimes? Many states now say yes, even when the algorithms they use for this purpose have a high error rate, a secret design, and a demonstrable racial […]
  • The Roots of Rwanda’s Genocide
    On New Year’s Eve, 2013, Rwanda’s former intelligence chief Patrick Karegeya was strangled to death in an upscale Johannesburg hotel. According to a South African inquest, Karegeya, who’d fled Rwanda six years earlier, had been lured into a deadly trap by operatives working for Paul Kagame, the leader of the regime he’d once served. As […]
  • ‘We Must Be Light!’
    In his poem “Days of 1935,” James Merrill imagined that he had shared the fate of the Lindbergh baby, who was kidnapped in New Jersey in March 1932, when Merrill was almost six, and who was found dead two and a half months later after the Lindberghs paid a $50,000 ransom: On the Lindbergh baby’s […]
  • Hansel and Gretel in Belarus
    In the months following its disputed presidential election last August, Belarus—often referred to as “the last dictatorship in Europe”—was the scene of enormous protests. The election predictably confirmed the continuation of authoritarian rule by the country’s first and only president, Alexander Lukashenka, who has remained in power since 1994. Many of the protests were organized […]

    In his book Uneasy Peace (2018), Patrick Sharkey writes: The videos of police violence have resonated so powerfully because they come at a time when there is no crisis of crime in most of the country, when every other form of violence in society has subsided.
