Shorties (Jhumpa Lahiri on Editing The Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories, Jenny Hval Profiled, and more)

The Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories

Literary Hub interviewed Jhumpa Lahiri about editing The Penguin Book of Italian Short Stories.

The Ringer profiled musician Jenny Hval.

Hval has a knack for putting everyday phenomena under a warped microscope, asking us to reexamine the bizarre and banal realities we take for granted in the 21st century. Whether she’s tackling the algorithms of Spotify playlist culture, the false promises of late capitalism, or the empty commodification of self-care, listening to Hval’s music makes everything seem newly strange.
