Review: Yuknavitch’s debut short fiction collection, Verge, is a study of characters on the margins of society – and reality – as we know it.
Nir Eyal ran a course at Stanford University teaching would-be tech-heads the dark arts of behavioural engineering. His first book, Hooked, became a bible for tech execs who wanted to create products that would keep us swiping and scrolling. Now he’s back with an antidote to tech addiction (but not an apology).
Somehow, with a decade between us and the assigned reading of The Great Gatsby, it’s much easier to stomach the green light.
Author Lisa Taddeo on her decade of research on desire and writing the year’s most talked-about book.
