What to Watch: Amazon describes its latest series as “equal parts high-concept thriller and coming-of-age drama.” If the latter is true, this middle-aged man is still several assassinations away from coming of age. But I’ll go with the high concept thriller part. Binge Hanna on Prime Video.

+ What to Book: Alex Kotlowitz, the author of There are No Children Here (one of the best urban ethnographies ever written) is back with another look at the violence that impacts everything in the city he knows so well. An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago.

+ What to Cusack: “I don’t want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don’t want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don’t want to do that.” That’s Lloyd Dobler in Say Anything. Elizabeth Nelson shares some reflections as the movie turns 30. The fact that it’s been that long bums me out, but I’m going the cheer myself and watch it again this weekend.
