You’ve got your Tocqueville’s and Bill Bryson’s on one side, and your F. Scott Fitzgerald’s and Harper Lee’s on another. But there have in fact been plenty of writers — including some of literature’s most luminous novelists — who have worked in both genres. Often to great effect: unsurprisingly, the talents which lend themselves to worthy fiction — the ability t...

The lost art of rest: How to relax

Even though our bodies and minds are begging for a break, modern culture has turned rest into a sin. So how can we catch a breath?I'll start by telling my own story. It will serve as proof that I represent one of the most severe deficits of contemporary society: I don't know how to rest. However, it also shows that each of us is the best healer of our own exhaustion and can find a way to deep rest. The path is simple to walk, but hard to enter.

Sunday Firesides: Your Routine Needs Rites of Passage

During WWII, it could take a soldier two weeks to get home, with days spent slowly traveling by ship across the Atlantic and by train through the States. Along the way he got a chance to unwind, decompress, and shift his mindset from warrior to civilian.  A soldier coming home from Afghanistan could be on the frontlines one day, and back with his family 48 hours later. Some have argued that moving modern servicemen straight from operations to leave has contributed to difficulties reintegrati...

"How the Pandemic Defeated America"

How did the writer of the title article headlined in this post ever slip by? I read the Atlantic faithfully, but somehow I missed Ed Yong.
