Gillian Anderson, again, people! When is this on US TV? Eh? Eh?
[K] It’s safe to assume we’re all watching this, right*? Gillian Anderson (somehow looking better than ever… does aging work differently on people I worshipped during the 90s??) fighting crime, wearing coats … stellar ratings which garantueed a second season practically before the premiere credits rolled and with that, Gillian Anderson’s regular presence on TV/the streaming site of your choice … The Fall is doing a lot of things right (including giving Once’ Huntsman and The Good Wife’s Archie Panjabi something to do).
*since crushing on Agent Scully is almost as essential to being a Media-Obsessed Lesbians Above the Age of 22 as watching Xena (mainly for subtext and abs)
Hats off to our beloved contributor Lydia Davis, who was just awarded the Man Booker International Prize, Great Britain’s most prestigious prize for fiction. In the judges’ citation, Sir Christopher Ricks asked how best to describe Davis’s works: “Just how to categorise them? They have been called stories but could equally be miniatures, anecdotes, essays, jokes, parables, fables, texts, aphorisms or even apophthegms, prayers or simply observations.”
