On The Dial | Jessica Hopper

I recently returned home from going on tour with my band. One of my favorite things about traveling with them is checking out what books everyone brings. Jordan brought a book of essays by Jessica Hopper that really grabbed me—The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic.

Design of the Week | One More Time With Feeling

From his impressive catalog of music, to his gothic novel And the Ass Saw the Angel, to his script and score for one of my all-time favorite films, the Aussie western The Proposition, Nick Cave is the man.

On the Dial | Suite for Barbara Loden

I've probably read more about Barbara Loden and the feature film she wrote and directed, Wanda, than any other actress and movie that I've never actually seen. Next month, our friends at Dorothy are publishing a striking new book by Nathalie Léger that won the 2012 Prix du Livre Inter. Eimear McBride calls it "inventive and affecting," and it absolutely is. It's a book that creeps up on you in a very sudden, surprising way.
