A ‘Call My By Your Name’ Sequel Novel is Officially Being Written – Could a Movie Follow?

Call Me By Your Name is officially getting a sequel, but not in the way you think. Author Andrew Aciman, who wrote the 2007 novel upon which Luca Guadagnino‘s Oscar-winning film was based, is penning a sequel book that is set to hit bookshelves this October. Aciman’s announcement of the Call Me By Your Name sequel novel, titled Find Me, comes after months of back-and-forth over whether Guadagnino plans to follow through on his promises to direct a film sequel. Perhaps the book could provide the...

6 Books in Translation to Read in March

It's the ides of March, and the only thing I have to beware is letting time get away from me and missing some of this month's books in translation. As you well know, I make an effort to read authors who are outside the English-speaking world. It's a great way to gain a different perspective and to learn about life around the globe. Here are six books in translation on my March reading list. They cover a range of genres, and I hope at least one catches your eye. All Happy Families: A Mem...

Suburb Staid No More: A California-French Family Remake a Bay Area House

When we first met Stéphanie Ross several years ago, she had a hint of plaster dust in her hair. That was at Remodelista’s San Francisco Market, where she was showing her children’s clothing line, Les Petits Carreaux (now available at Anthropologie and in some women’s sizes, too). At the time, she had just about finished resuscitating her family’s apartment near the Champs-Élysées—we took a tour and immediately featured it: see A Grand but Understated Flat in Paris. And she was also getting start...

Guest Review: The Killer Collective

Summary: A fast-paced, page-turning novel of betrayal, vengeance, and depraved secrets in high places from the New York Times bestselling author of the John Rain and Livia Lone series. When a joint FBI–Seattle Police investigation of an international child pornography ring gets too close to certain powerful people, sex-crimes detective Livia Lone becomes the target of a hit that barely goes awry—a hit that had been offered to John Rain, a retired specialist in “natural causes.”Suspecting the FB...

William Faulkner’s Review of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea (1952)

Images via Wikimedia Commons In the mid-20th century, the two big dogs in the American literary scene were William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway. Both were internationally revered, both were masters of the novel and the short story, and both won Nobel Prizes. Born in Mississippi, Faulkner wrote allegorical histories of the South in a style that is both elliptical and challenging. His works were marked by uses of stream-of-consciousness and shifting points of view. He also favored titanically lo...

5 Companies That Make It Easy to Upgrade Your Ikea Sofa

Seven years ago, Izabella wrote about the “thrillingly transformative” Ikea-ready slipcovers from Swedish company Bemz. (You can read her story here.) Since then, more businesses have popped up to help customers upgrade their Ikea sofas, either with new legs or custom coverings. We rounded up our five favorites, starting, of course, with Bemz. Featured photograph courtesy of Bemz. Bemz There are so many reasons to like Bemz—and not just for the quality and uncommon stylishness of their slipcov...

The first great photography craze

Before Instagram, selfie sticks, disposable cameras, Polaroids, and box brownies, there were carte de visites – small photographic albumen prints, mounted on card, which were wildly popular during the Victorian era. Also known as CdV, carte de visites followed the early pioneering photographic techniques such as daguerreotype and ambrotype, which were expensive and difficult to reproduce. Cartes de visites were born from calling cards, which bore the owner’s name and usually an emblem, a...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: 4 Good Books and a Story

Good morning. If you're in the United States, I hope you're adjusting to the time change. I actually do better with the spring forward than I do with the fall back. Maybe that's because I love the idea that I can now take an outdoor walk after work. Yay for evening daylight. I had a decent reading week, but that might be because most of the books I read were short and didn't require a lot of thought. Always a good choice after editing all day. We haven't watched anything in particular ...

Elevating the Everyday: At Home with Sanne Hop and Family in the Netherlands

Last June when Sanne Hop and her family of six moved from their apartment in a historic building in Amsterdam to a just-built house in the suburbs, I was one of the 94,700 people avidly following along. Since then, we’ve been there to experience—via Instagram (@sanne hop)—life with a toddler (when will three-year-old Kaatje agree to decamp from her parents’ bed?), the red bike Pippa got for her sixth birthday, and the alder cones they all recently gathered to make dye for wooden beads. Just the ...

10 Design Ideas to Steal from Verjus in San Francisco

Traveling through Europe in recent years, designer Lindsay Tusk and chef Michael Tusk noticed “different variations on the same theme” of an informal and energetic style of dining in Paris, Venice, and San Sebastian Gambero. So the Tusks, known in San Francisco for their restaurants Quince and Cotogna, came up with the idea for Verjus, a bar à vin and cave à manger (eat-in cellar) with a “high-fidelity atmosphere full of gusto, spontaneity, and excitement,” says Lindsay Tusk. An all-day menu wit...

Creative Flow: A Novelist’s Elegant Pied-a-Terre by Colombe Studio

When we stumbled upon Colombe Studio’s Instagram account, we discovered image after image that activated our endorphins. It was clear that we had to share founder Marta Chrapka’s sophisticated projects on our site. A couple months ago, we did just that—see A Glamorous Pre-War Flat in Poland, Courtesy of Colombe Design (and eBay)—and today, not content with just a one-off, we’re spotlighting another refreshingly grown-up home by the Warsaw-based designer. This one belongs to a couple (a writer of...

Schizophrenia and ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky

Schizophrenia is the most iconic of all mental illnesses but both its conceptualization and causes remain elusive. The popular image portrays patients convinced of being persecuted and hearing voices that nobody else can hear. In reality this complex brain disorder presents an endless variety of psychotic (delusions and hallucinations) and non-psychotic symptoms. This complexity is at the heart of a century-long debate about whether schizophrenia is a single illness or should be conceptualized a...

A Book Reading of “Zenobia Mistri – A Teacher Par Excellence” by Shireen Isal

Lately I’ve been very caught up with the idea of immortality. Not the Jack Sparrow and Fountain of Youth kind of course, but the kind that makes someone unforgettable to more than their immediate generation. And the most potent experience of this attempt to make someone immortal is when the immortal almost rises, phoenix-like before your very eyes. A book reading brought this about for me. Shireen Isal, a Zoroastrian woman living in London wrote a book about her French language teacher, Zenobi...

Steal This Look: Pastel Bright Guest Room in Paris

A while back we featured the Hotel Henriette, a 30-year-old hotel renovated by Vanessa Scoffier of Les Nouveaux Décorateurs. Each guest room has a different pastel palette, featuring paints mixed by Scoffier herself and outfitted with personal finds from Les Puces du Design and more. Here’s a look at one of our favorite rooms, plus a few sources for getting the look at home. Above: Photograph courtesy of Hotel Henriette.

I’ve Been Silicon Valley Sharia’d

I've Been Silicon Valley Sharia'd U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Last week, the little birdies in Twitter's legal department notified me that one of my tweets from 2015 is “in violation of Pakistan law.” It seems like ancient history, but Islamic supremacists never forget — or forgive. My innocuous tweet featured a compilation image of the 12 Muhammad cartoons published by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in 2005. It also linked to my Jan. 8, 2015, syndicated column on the Charlie Hebdo jihad massa...

Steal This Look: A Warm, Minimal Guest Bedroom in LA

Los Angeles–based costume designer Gordana Golubovic used her sourcing skills and eye for fabric and layout in designing her Spanish-style home in Los Feliz. The result? A quiet, personal space with tinted concrete, bleached wood, reupholstered Ikea furniture, and everything else sourced from favorite RM LA shops such as Lost & Found, Lawson Fenning, and County Ltd. Here’s a look at the upstairs guest room and a list of sources both from Golubovic and a few alternatives for those pieces that are...

Free speech roundup

We’ll pass the bill first, and let the courts tell us later whether it violates the First Amendment. That’s not how it’s supposed to work [my Free State Notes on a Maryland “cyberbullying” bill] Local laws requiring government contractors to disclose/disclaim ties to the anti-Israel BDS movement have rightly come under criticism. Will that spill over to a constitutionally dubious new Los Angeles ordinance requiring contractors to disclose ties with an advocacy group devoted to a different iss...

Humor Lardner, Ring: My Four Weeks in France (1918), v1, 23 Feb 2019

When a newspaper sends its sports reporter (who is also a famous humourist) Ring Lardner to France in 1917 as a war correspondent, you don't expect a gritty tale of the trenches, and you don't get it. The chapter headings are the clue. 1: Dodging Submarines to Cover the Biggest Game of All 2: I Get to Paris and Encounter Some Strange Sights 3: I Try to Get to the American Camp— But Meet Disaster 4: Finally I Get to the American Camp; What I Find There 5: My Adventures at the British Front ...

Beneath the Surface: A Petite Manhattan Apartment with a Surprising Amount of Storage (and Small-Space Tricks)

The secret to this petite Manhattan apartment? Its inventive hidden storage—so well-hidden, in fact, that I didn’t notice it at first glance. When two Israeli-born architects, Noam Dvir and Daniel Rauchwerger of BoND, acquired the circa-1910, 520-square-foot apartment in the city’s West Chelsea neighborhood, it was laid out like a typical, cramped New York flat, with a railroad layout and a walled-off kitchen and bathroom in the center of the space that didn’t get any light. The duo transformed ...

Steal This Look: The $4K Parisian Kitchen from Two DIY Experts

You might think the impressively low price tag ($4,200) is what makes this renovation from Parisian designers Heju so exceptional, but it’s also the size. The kitchen is nested in a chambre de bonne, Paris’s answer to worker’s housing in the top floor garret of most buildings. The rooms are typically 65 to 130 square feet; they’re impossibly small (I know because I lived in one for a year) and any semblance of a kitchen is rarely functional. But Heju solved the problem with grey and white color-...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: A Great Reading Week

I've reached that point where cabin fever is starting to set in. The sleet or ice or cold or snow has kept me cooped up inside and made me miss way too many outdoor walks. It's driving me crazy! We finally started the new season of True Detective. I like it but need to see a few more episodes before commenting. We finished the Netflix series You, which started out strong, but I was less enamored by the end. We also finally watched the movie Room, which I liked. It's been too long since I re...

Are the Democrats Bent on Suicide?

Are the Democrats Bent on Suicide? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- After reading an especially radical platform agreed upon by the British Labor Party, one Tory wag described it as “the longest suicide note in history.” The phrase comes to mind on reading of the resolution calling for a Green New Deal, advanced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and endorsed by at least five of the major Democratic candidates for president. The Green New Deal is designed to recall the halcyon days of the 1930s, when, so t...
