A quick programming note: I’ll be speaking at the Corcoran Gallery of Art next Monday, January 12. The lecture begins at 7 and, unfortunately, costs money. (I always get very insecure at the prospect of having people pay to hear me speak.) I’m currently in the process of developing my stump speech for the new book, but this will be my Proust powerpoint, in which I begin with umami and end with Girl Talk.
