What to Book: “In a dramatic account of violence and espionage, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter Ronan Farrow exposes serial abusers and a cabal of powerful interests hell-bent on covering up the truth, at any cost.” Ronan Farrow’s latest is fast-paced, timely, and endlessly interesting. Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators. (Farrow’s past experiences involving his sister Dylan and Woody Allen make the story behind the story as interesting as the story itself…)

+ What to Hear: I’ve been waiting for Michael Kiwanuka’s new album for a long time and it was released today. The Guardian is already calling it one of the greatest albums of the decade. Even higher praise? It’s this week’s NextDraft must listen pick! (As good as Kiwanuka’s recordings are, he’s even better live. So get out and see him…)

+ What to Read: “At the psychosocial center, Kizilhan was meeting with Midya, an 8-year-old Yazidi girl who used to faint some 20 times a day. Kizilhan said he frequently received calls from doctors in Canada and Europe wondering what to do about fainting among Yazidis, especially among the women who had been raped. ‘The women are always having dissociations,’ he told me. ‘Usually because of a trigger, a smell, or they might see something in the paper. To avoid the rape in their minds, they might faint and fall down. They live with a feeling of unreality and detachment from the world.'” Amazing journalism from Jennifer Percy in the NYT Magazine: How Does the Human Soul Survive Atrocity? “After the horror of ISIS captivity, tens of thousands of Iraqis — many of them children — are caught up in a mental-health crisis unlike any in the world.”
