We’ve been listening to Frank Sinatra this weekend more than we usually do, happy to participate in marking what would have been the crooner’s 100th birthday. Who doesn’t like to give “My Way” or “Come Fly With Me” a listen? Here’s a good piece on a few books about Frank, or, as some referred to him, “monster.”

Hamlet is eternal. So is the play that shares the character’s name. You have read it, I imagine, and perhaps seen it on the stage. What is it, however, about Germans and their obsession with the tragedy?

Tattoos in museums? Yes, the ancient practice is popping up in high-art institutions more and more. Want to know why? Read this.

Kurt Vonnegut is a beloved author, and his works have been translated into myriad languages. How about Jane Vonnegut? Ever heard of her? You have now here. And if you are a Vonnegut fan, thank her for what she did.
