Weekend Whats

What to Watch: Dysopian futures are all the rage in pop culture these days. Silo on AppleTV is a good entry into the genre. It almost never happens that all the members of my nuclear family sit down and watch the same show at the same time, but we’re watching Silo.

+ What to Book: I’m reading Dennis Lehane’s latest novel, Small Mercies. “Set against the hot, tumultuous months when the Boston’s desegregation of its public schools exploded in violence, Small Mercies is a superb thriller, a brutal depiction of criminality and power, and an unflinching portrait of the dark heart of American racism.” In other words, it’s about the past but it’s also timely.

+ What to Read: “Let him live oh my god. Everyone loves property rights until some guy does something cool.” NYT (Gift Article): When the Neighbors Don’t Share Your Vision (and That Vision Involves ‘Transformers’ Statues).
