ailiet: (the fall)
[personal profile] ailiet
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).
