    In 1990, the avant-garde jazz musician Sun Ra arrived at Dartmouth to collaborate with the school's jazz band, where Michael Lowenthal - an anxious, 20-year-old senior - played trumpet. As rehearsals got underway and two musical worlds collided, Lowenthal struggled with the improvisation that Sun Ra's sparse, yet spiritual, melodies demanded. In this essay, Lowenthal recounts his "otherworldly" experience with the famous jazz star who claimed to be from Saturn.

    Twelve-year-old Larry Blank fears he's as nondescript as his name. At his tony private school, where kids compete to claim links to oppression, his humdrum family history marks him so boring he's not even worth bullying. In the run-up to his bar mitzvah, he hits on the idea of spinning his ancestors' experiences into a saga harrowing enough to bestow on him the coveted status of underprivilege.
