A recipe for America

Hello,

Today I posted a review of Matt Yglesias’s book One Billion Americans. Let me know what you think of it! Comments are open on my posts now, or you can reply to this email.

Ezra Klein asked for sci-fi recommendations this week on Twitter and got a lot of replies:

I’m reading Emily St John Mandel’s very good Station Eleven at the moment, which I’d really recommend. It won the Arthur C. Clarke award, which goes to the best sci-fi novel published in the UK each year.

Last weekend I went to North Queensferry, near Edinburgh, and got a great view of the Forth rail bridge:

There’s a nifty interactive image on Wikipedia that compares its span to other bridges, including the Golden Gate Bridge.

Til next week,

Fergus
