:D yusss my preferences are consistent!!!
The Embassy of Cambodia
By Zadie Smith
The Embassy of Cambodia was a short story by Zadie Smith in the New Yorker (Feb. 2013) and now Hamish Hamilton has published a wonderful pocket hard cover edition, which I recently received as a gift.
This story is beautifully crafted and is one that begs to be read and reread. Smith’s short work of fiction is a vivid portrait of humanity and society that will certainly provoke questions regarding complicity, suffering and relationships for the reader.
Today it’s articles! The majority of the pieces below were shared/sent to me by Paul. I guess he really knows what writers and themes/topics I’m interested in reading! :) (The George Saunders link is actually a video, not an article at all, but it is one of my favourites of 2013 and it fits well here - I’ve decided.)
Enjoy these finely crafted, thought provoking reads!

Spinach and cheddar crepe for me and 3 eggs over easy, bacon, toast and homefries for the gentleman.
Why does the east end have all of the good (& inexpensive) breakfast places? At EggsCrepes they give you the coffee in an insulated carafe. Yes.
“Nice try stone wall!”
