Really, my roundabout tag serves the same purpose as my recs tag, just for non-fannish things that I want to keep an eye on for whatever reason. That being said:
I'm slowly making my way through Longform's Top 10 and Byliner's 102 Spectacular Nonfiction Articles of 2012. The Innocent Man (Part Two) - is long and heartbreaking and really, really good. I'll be checking out the rest of Pamela Colloff's work. But first up is David Grann's Trial by Fire, a 2009 profile of Cameron Todd Willingham in The New Yorker. Seeing Jeremy Brett as Maxim de Winter feels a little strange to me, (possibly because he has a sort of natural warmth and resonance that I've never associated with the character) but I'm still enjoying this adaptation of Rebecca from 1979. Knights Errant, Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong, and The Fox Sister have recently joined the ranks of things I try to catch up with at irregular intervals. J.L.Carr's A Month in the Country and John Meade Falkner's Moonfleet are both beautiful books, and I need to remember to pick up a copy of each (particularly the Carr, since the NYRB does such lovely covers).
