Morning Bites: Zadie Smith on Parks, Ursula K. Le Guin’s Birthday, Kathryn Davis, Kenneth Anger, and More

Ursula K. LeGuin, Children's Books Winner, 1973

Happy birthday to Ursula K. Le Guin. Wired talked with her last year.

“A little while after my father died, I moved to Rome. I was in mourning and it was winter, and the city was all stone and diagonal rain to me.” – Zadie Smith writes about her late father and public parks. It’s pretty excellent.

Kathryn Davis talks about Duplex on the latest Bat Segundo Show.

Kenneth Anger says there’s a third volume of Hollywood Babylon that “can’t be published because of a very nasty group who call themselves Scientologists.”

Atlas Obscura visits the site of The Amityville Horror.

We’d love to get to know the folks that stole all the Pappy Van Winkle bourbon.
