Tom Wolfe Can’t Shake His Critics, Blue Reigns Supreme and a Gravedigger’s Moment of Truth

What We’re Reading

BY // 09.03.16

Our editors are a diverse lot, and are constantly perusing a long and broad list of publications. Fashion? Art? Architecture? Culinary studies? Semantics? Humor? Gossip? It’s all here. In What We’re Reading, PaperCity shares the wealth.

Take that, Darwin and Chomsky! Tom Wolfe wants nothing to do with your theories, and in his new book sets out to disprove that language is “partly a product of biological evolution.” But the esteemed novelist fails, writes Jerry A. Coyne. Even so, I bet the book makes for a thrilling and fun read.

I love the color blue. It was my favorite crayon shade (cornflower, et al), and seeing it gives me calm, or, perhaps enlivens me. Seems that I am not alone. Bernd Brunner delves into the blue here.

Hamlet perhaps was not a fan of the color blue. The young man was full of indecision and angst, so blue would have been to much for him. How old was Hamlet, anyway? Was the gravedigger correct? Read this and find out.

We like art, and we like hotels. Better yet, we love hotels that love art. On the walls, on the shelves, on the floors. Take a look at these selections, and enjoy the trip.

Let’s end the week on some fun fashion images and words. Venture here for pleasure, and watch below. Happy Labor Day.
