What to Watch: From about 15 minutes into each episode of HBO’s Succession, I start repeating out loud, “Please don’t end, please don’t end.” That likely irritates others on the couch, but I’m confident they agree with the sentiment. An excellent ensemble cast led by Jeremy Strong makes this a much watch. Season 2 is underway.

+ What to Book: The only way to get your child back is to kidnap another child. You are now part of the chain. It’s a white knuckle thriller that’s getting raves from the literary crowd. You’ll know if you like it in about one minute. And if you do, you won’t be able to put it down for a couple hours. Adrian McKinty’s The Chain.

+ What to Attend: There are very few sure things in life. Having a great time at a Pop-Up Magazine show is one of them. Those who have attended past shows know this, so get tickets to the show in your city now.
