This Week's Recommendations
- •Book: Submission by Michel HouellebecqMore subtle and human than its irresistibly provocative premise implies.
- •Audiobook: Stories I Tell My Friends by Rob LoweActors reading their own dishy autobiographies is a great genre and probably deserves its own list.
- •On Netflix: The Roosevelts by Ken BurnsHistory, when it's well told, is so entertaining. However, he does overuse the period music thing. Imagine if 70 years from now someone did a documentary on us, and Major Lazer was playing over every photograph, no matter what the subject.
- •Music: County Christmas on Pandora
