The "Good Eye" does herself
Columns  September 4, 2014, by Amy Gentry
"...As a bookhead, I was curious about this tome of sartoria edited by three literary heavy-hitters: Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?, Heidi Julavits, novelist and reliably well-dressed editor of The Believer, and Leanne Shapton, an artist whose graphic novel in auction-catalog form was optioned for a Brad Pitt/Natalie Portman vehicle.

Monsters is the best monster movie of the millennium (so far)
Screens Story  October 29, 2010, by Marc Savlov
