Some links

  • Incredible interview with the New Yorker’s Jon Lee Anderson. He tells about the time he was arrested in Guinea and accused of being a spy. Happens to journalists all the time, you say? No, this was when he was thirteen. If he ever writes a memoir, publishers will be lining up. (via Jenny)
  • I thoroughly enjoyed Ed’s account of a near-drink with William T. Vollmann.
  • Golden Rule Jones has a lovely new home. Be sure to update your bookmarks and feed readers.
  • Interesting article about a promotional push by The Economist in Baltimore. A few years ago, I started hearing people talk about The Economist all the time. I wasn’t sure if the magazine was getting more popular or if I was just traveling in different circles. This quote clears it up: “Of The Economist’s worldwide circulation of just less than 1.1 million, Rossi said, North America accounts for a bit more than half, at 569,336, a figure that has increased 47.3 percent since 2001.” Wow, that’s a big jump. They deserve it. It’s a great magazine. If I had more time, I’d read every issue all the way through.

    Max, I've been a subscriber (not always a reader) to The Economist for about 15 years now. It is a great publication, but its editorial voice permeates, so you have to take it as such. I often wish they'd give up their policy of not posting bylines.
