Morning Bites: Wallace Shawn reading on a beach, Jarvis Cocker’s book, post-America, post-Hemingway, and more

Wallace Shawn gives us what is possibly the greatest summer reading (non) lists ever.  God bless America, and God bless Wallace Shawn.

  • “So now you know the words to our songs.  Pretty soon you’ll all be singing along.” – Jarvis Cocker is publishing a book of his song lyrics.  Even though we know all of them already, we will probably buy it.  (And yes, the quote is from a Pulp song.  So sue us for being fans.)
  • Taking a look at a post-American world with Fareed Zakaria’s The Post-American World: Release 2.0.
