Books We Love: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed

So you’ve been publicly shamed.

Haven’t we all??

So you’ve been publicly shamed.

Haven’t we all??

In his new book, Jon Ronson—expert in psychopaths, weaponized paranormal activity, and political extremists—brings his beloved brand of self-deprecating inquiry to a topic a little closer to our tender hearts. Meet the plagiarizers, Twitter gaffers, SEO hackers, and outed adulterers who populate our contemporary land, where all-but-eternal embarrassment is just a misstep away.

Read So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed  and you’ll never click ‘send’ without double-checking your recipients ever again.

Introducing the Daydream Collection

Our Daydream Collection is nothing but sunglasses, sunglasses, sunglasses.

Our Daydream Collection is nothing but sunglasses, sunglasses, sunglasses.

We’re introducing new frame shapes Jackson (a wider but similar take on the ever-likeable Winston) and Abel (a little angular, a little round, a lot of fun). They’ll be your new grab-and-gos for lunchtime saunters and Vitamin D replenishment, while current favorites Piper, Topper, and Madison get a little freshening-up in colorways like Petal Tortoise, Crystal, and English Oak.

It’s a completely sublime way to ease into the season—and not a day too soon.

Andy Warhol: A Biography

Of all the artifacts surrounding Andy Warhol—books written by him, books written about him, books written about books written about him—why are we reading this one?

Of all the artifacts surrounding Andy Warhol—books written by him, books written about him, books written about books written about him—why are we reading this one?

Because it is written by Wayne Koestenbaum! (Duh.)

Around Valentine’s Day of this year, Open Road Integrated Media launched a series called Factory Books— a collection of memoirs, biographies, and essays about the world of Andy Warhol. There’s a memoir by Candy Darling, recollections from Ultra Violet, a video novel (!) by Viva, and a handful of other brightly-colored offerings from Factory superstars and Factory-adjacent observers. Yum.

We’re partial to the bio of Warhol because the author, Wayne Koestenbaum, is the literary equivalent of a mythical hybrid creature: he’s part poet, part critic, part historian, part theorist. He is the hippogriff of writers. Or maybe the cockatrice!

Either way, magical.
