    You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose. At least, so goes the truism. In the rollicking, disgusting, sarcastic, and poignant first chapter of Will Grayson, will grayson, Will negates all three clauses of the maxim and kicks off what is arguab...

    There’s a campaign going on at the moment, backed by women as influential and diverse as Condoleezza Rice, Beyoncé, and Sheryl Sandberg. The movement would have us ban the word “bossy” from everyday discourse, and especially prevent the word from being used to describe girls. The basic argume...

    While most of the attention focused on “Let It Go,” the iconic song at the heart of Disney’s hot latest release, “Frozen,” has been directed at the Tony Award-winning singer Idina Menzel, who voices the character of Elsa and therefore sings “Let It Go” in the movie, not a little of it ...

    You’re no stranger to untimely kisses and unplanned attachments, laughter burbling between entangled lips, secret smiles slipped across crowded rooms: this is what you have lived on for months (if not years) before me. I am nothing new to you— a fresh cover of an old song, nothing mo...

    Of all my classes, I always loved social sciences least—until I took Mr. Cherin’s economics class. Economics is fascinating, but Mr. Cherin is even better. He shook my world like a snow globe, unexpectedly but gently, shifting the flakes of my worldview until I learned to do so myself. I firs...

    The Federal Reserve Bank has played an important role in the American economy over the past hundred years; it should continue to operate for the next century, but it must also adapt to this century’s challenges and expectations. One of the biggest concerns of the twenty-first century is transparen...

    Vegetarianism is often thought of as a hippie fad or a relative of the organic and local food movements. In fact, vegetarianism--voluntary abstinence from the consumption of animal flesh--has been around since ancient times. The vegetarian diet has been followed for numerous reasons, including relig...

    The fact of world hunger has always disturbed me. I find it appalling that even today, as agriculturally productive as we are as a global community, many in the world are still hungry. At the same time, I am deeply impressed with many organizations that exist today for the purpose of fighting global...

    “Pick one,” my mother told me one August afternoon when I was six. “You’re coming here next summer.” We were visiting the Concordia Language Villages in northern Minnesota, a set of summer camps where children and teens sojourn annually to set aside their technology, American music, and ev...

    It will come as a delight, though no surprise, to fans: Tamora Pierce has gifted us with yet another masterpiece. At nearly thirty books and counting, it is clear that Pierce has lost none of her renowned brilliance. It’s all still there: the ambient magic, creeping off the page and into your vein...

    My ear has been tuned to your voice: the exact frequency of hertz at which you make the air vibrate, the constant whine with which the stretching of your vocal chords complains, the particular consonants dictated by the shape of your tongue and the spacing of your teeth-- all of which I wis...

    Rami dipped her brush into her jar of nail paint and started painting the nails of her right hand, always the harder ones to paint because she had to use her clumsy left hand for the job. The task would be simpler if she could paint her nails one night and then only have to retouch them on subsequen...

    Garo removed the façade, entered the shelter, and replaced the plank, hurrying at this point because of what he heard behind him. As soon as he had finished the task, he sprang to Rami's mat and sat down. "I didn't even know you could cry." "What you don't know fill...

    Taylor Swift knows how to have fun. Her recent Red Tour concert was more of a party than an exhibition of musical excellence. Once fireworks, a flying platform, twenty-odd “backup” dancers, and over a dozen costume changes were piled on top of the playlist, it was hard to remember that the music...

    The hype is right. Mumford and Sons' latest album, “Babel,” is everything that's been said about it and more. The lyrics are deep, complex, refreshing, and perfectly complemented by the syncopated melodies and swelling harmonies that carry them. The ­instrumentalists outdo themselves; if ...

    If you’ve never met Will Shakespeare, do so immediately. Susan Cooper’s thin novel, “King of Shadows,” is a perfect place to start. In fewer than 200 exquisite pages, you’ll get to know the Bard intimately as you travel through time with your narrator, Nat Field. Nat is a 12-year-old...

    I should have grown up In privilege and luxury. On the banks of the Scamander, I was a child running free. I was the Princess of Troy, But not without a price. The gods could have left me alone. Wouldn’t that have been nice? But Apollo saw me; Claimed it was love at first sight. H...

    This is for the you who was a still-not-quite-adjusted junior and the me who was a wreck of a culture-shocked freshman. This is for the way we sat in the back of the Spanish room when you were the closest thing I had to a shoulder to cry on, and for the way we stayed up on G-chat talking to crowd ou...

    Returning from scouting, Naeri took the passage that Garo had shown her years prior, the one that ran alongside the sewer system. As far as she knew, Rami and the others didn't know that the passage existed, though all the good assassins were acquainted with it. The passage was perpetually sile...
