    Everyone hates them...and yet just about everyone has them, at least sometimes. In the United States, 11.6 million employees have reported going to work with a hangover within the previous 12 months. In this personal essay - a spirituous blend of philosophy, theology, history and biochemistry - Evan Rail sings the praises of the bad morning, arguing that a well-made katzenjammer can change our world and ourselves for the better, allowing us to find at least some good in feeling very bad.

Despite beer's renaissance, however, no one seems to have focused on why beer suddenly matters, or what it is about beer that makes it the drink for our age.

    A thoughtful meditation on the meaning of the voyage by the travel writer Evan Rail, the author of more than 70 travel articles for the New York Times. In it, Rail questions the meaning of travel from the perspective of a travel insider, finding unexpected pleasures in the worst moments on the road and asking serious questions about what travel means today. When just about everything is available everywhere, what is the point of packing ourselves into aluminum tubes and shipping ourselves to the other side of the earth?
