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.

We’ve long admired Mary-Louise Parker; have you seen her in Fried Green Tomatoes? How about Angels in America? Powerful actress, and beautiful. She’s just published a book, and it is getting rave reviews. Try this on for size.
