Bites: Nora Ephron not optimistic, novels about being broke, America still liberal, Antony does Beyonce, problems with the High Line

  • Another list: The Best Novels About Being Broke. First three are Oliver Twist, Hunger, and, my personal favorite, Down and Out in Paris and London. On Knut Hamsun’s Hunger: “Basically imagine what Williamsburg or The Mission would be like if people’s parent’s weren’t paying their bills.” Ayyye.
