Bookmarks List/Bedside Table

Currently reading and enjoying:

"Ballerina," by Morton Bartlett

-This article by Priscilla Frank (at Huffington Post) about Morton Bartlett. Bartlett was a graphic designer/photographer who also devoted years to an odd passion: creating and photographing dolls.

-This piece in The Wall Street Journal by Maira Kalman, about how she spends a typical week. I just adore her…

-“Who Will Greet You at Home,” a bizarre but lovely short story in The New Yorker, by Lesley Nneka Arimah. A brief snippet: “[E]verybody knew how risky it was to make a child out of hair, infused with the identity of the person who had shed it. But a child of many hairs? Forbidden.”

-The trailer for Anomalisa, Charlie Kaufman’s new movie (it’s stop motion animation!). Can’t wait for this…
