Against Beauty

In The New Republic (!), Adam Kirsch writes Against Beauty, reflecting on Zadie Smith’s On Beauty and her later essay, “E.M. Forster, Middle Manager”. I like On Beauty more and more; it’s a vast book, it’s Howards End in modern dress, and yet it’s also a larger and deeper book.

Meanwhile, I’m rereading Allegra Goodman’s wonderful Intuition.
