I'm back on The Awl this week discussing the ancient Greek penchant for cooking and eating kids: "Episodes of Eating Children in Ancient Greece, Ranked in Order of Reasonableness."

Thomas Hardy and E. M. Forster

Thank you, Amber Sparks, for my sharing my new favorite author meeting story:

"Thomas Hardy once took E.M. Forster to his personal cat cemetery, and made him walk around for like an hour while he named all of the cats buried there (and there were many) and told Forster how they lived and how they died."
