It is one of those weeks where Friday looks like heaven. Here are the best gosh darn links from around the web:
–> Speaking of UMass, just about everyone put out a book this spring. Confetti cannons for Jensen Beach (Swallowed by the Cold), Sara Majka (Cities I’ve Never Lived In), and Jung Yun (Shelter). All three of these books are poised to blow up in the best ways.
–> Everyone’s superhero Lin-Manuel Miranda featured in By the Book. (I wonder how many times I can mention Lin-Manuel on this blog before people stop reading?)
–> Reese Witherspoon’s making movies about women no matter what shitty dude producers think.
–> Please tell me you are listening to BuzzFeed’s new podcast The Tell Show. It’s oversharing for nerdy introverts.

This month I interviewed some really rad people, including Helen Oyeyemi, Danielle Dutton, and Kaitlyn Greenidge. All of them are brilliant and their books are wonderful. I will keep talking about them until you chase me out of town.
Thanks for reading.
