Reads of the Week #40

Milestone upon milestones: forty posts and 250+ articles now collected, keep reading:

First Laura Kennedy on Essena O’Neill: a normal 18-year-old: self-obsessed and narcissistic

Next Dawn Cox on Twitter, Secret Teacher and where the truth lies in education

A powerful piece by Binyavanga Wainaina on how to write about Africa

Completely different but equally compelling, Sarah Boxer on the exemplary narcissism of Snoopy. (Two articles on narcissism this week? Better watch myself [in the mirror!!!])

History choice of the week is Dave Hannigan’s piece on Fenway Park and Irish history.
And finally, Xan Brooks interviews Cate Blanchett, it’s great, she’s great, but you knew that.
