    Most species hang out only with family members. Everybody else is a potential enemy. Good ol’ Homo sapiens have been successful because we’ve extended the definition of family by using mutually agreed upon stories — “fictive kinship” as Israeli researcher Yuval Noah Harari points out.

    Fat makes your meals more palatable and helps you feel full, so it’s no wonder the high-fat ketogenic diet is increasing in popularity. The diet has been trending for the past three years, as “keto” blogs and cookbooks continue to pop up and build an impressive fan base. This diet has been used under close supervision by physicians and dietitians since the 1920s for treating epilepsy and has shown promise in managing brain cancer. But is it useful and healthy as a strategy for weight loss?

    Madeleine L’Engle once said that “A Wrinkle in Time” was rejected by 26 publishers. On the surface, this seems incredible, given that it went on to win the 1962 Newbery Medal and become one of the most beloved of all modern children’s novels (in one poll second in popularity only to E.B. White’s “Charlotte’s Web”).

    If there is an urtext of modern feminism, especially for those of us who prefer it in the form of juicy dystopian novels instead of lofty essays, then Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” is probably the closest thing we’ve got. It’s one of those books that people believe can tell a lot about another person based on what that other person thought of it.

    David Sedaris has spent decades mining his life for nuggets he can polish and sell: the time he was a department store elf, going to the dentist in Paris, his time in a nudist trailer park. His essays tend to meander over a true-ish story from his life, with characters a bit more eccentric than the people you tend to meet in your life, like the taxidermist with the mummified human arm or his neighbor who dyed her teenage daughter’s hair gray in order to keep being the pretty one.

    "The Exact Date David Sedaris Found the Voice That Made Him a Star" is from the June 20, 2017 Books section of The Washington Post. It was written by Rachel Manteuffel  and narrated by Sam Scholl.

    A week ago, Kanye West said that 400 years of slavery was a “choice,” appearing to blame enslaved black people for not freeing themselves sooner. He said that the discussion about putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill made him want “to use Bitcoin,” because, “It’s like when you see all the slave movies: Why you gotta keep reminding us about slavery?” And West said that certain black icons such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X are “just too far in the past and not relatable and that’s what makes them safe.”
