The Week in Review

Sometimes you feel like Pat Nixon; at other times you feel like her cat Morpheus. You deserve some time for yourself. Write an essay in the second person and see if it doesn't propel you into an unexpected relationship with someone who believes it's addressing them. It worked for Jay McInerney, he's now married to Anne Hearst. It can work for you. But before you sit down to write, we permit you to become inspired by these delights:

Tyler Coates' magnificent essay about his dad...

Elizabeth Gumport takes a retrospective look at where we went wild...

Teghan Beaudette's list of important turn-offs...

A May-December romance to forget.
