One of the delights of the Nieman year is READING. I have a higgledy piggledy stack of books by my bed – on Iran, on Obama, on the cello, on food – and joy of joys here is a stack of new recommendations from the Economist. I’ve read Game Change, the Cello Suites, and the Imperfectionist so far. Wonder if I can learn to sleep less?
