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.

André Glucksmann died on November 10, and I am glad he was spared the carnage and lunacy that attacked his city this past Friday. He was a great thinker, and this piece in Tablet is well with your time. (And here is Glucksmann’s obituary in The New York Times.)

Truman Capote was a gifted writer, a prodigy, and a troubled man whose life ended in lonely solitude and regret. But oh, could he write! Here’s a nice read in New Statesman on the talent from Alabama.

She’s from Texas, and she is making waves in the film world. Makenzie Leigh is a name you’ll be hearing a lot, and Interview talks to her here.
