Rethinking Calendar Girls, Legends Hit Broadway and Farmhouse Fantasies

What We’re Reading Now

BY // 12.02.15

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

Joan Didion is, without dispute, a fine writer, one of America’s greatest chroniclers of people and places, and the follies of both. Her essays will stand the test of time, and her recent turn as Céline‘s poster girl is introducing her to a new generation. However, writes Ian Penman, a new biography of Didion regrettably misses the mark.

Calendar girls! Well, yes, and boys, of course. But Pirelli has done something different for 2016, and it is provoking much discussion. Read about it here.

Al Pacino. Giorgio Armani. Two stars, legends even. Now they’ve teamed up on Broadway, where Pacino will wear clothing designed by the Italian icon for a David Mamet production.

I’ve long had a fantasy that involves grapes and a farmhouse. Here are five homesteads that look marvelous, and all are worthy of a dream.

Finally, December brings thoughts of Saint Nicholas and trees and gifts. But don’t forget Krampus, a hairy creature who has been keeping children in line for centuries. Happy Holidays!
