- "The Abyss," by Rebekah Frumkin in Granta (on working in a haunted house and being haunted humans).
- "How Long Has It Been Since You Smelled a Flower?" a mini-collection of prisoners' writing curated/introduced by Richard Shelton.
- "The Fourth State of Matter" by Jo Ann Beard in The New Yorker. This is so beautiful and moving and upsetting and perfect. (Many thanks to Richard Gilbert, whose newest blog entry sent me scrambling to read this essay!)
