I am a 29-year-old writer living in Detroit, Michigan.
Podcasts of short stories, via the wonderful "Selected Shorts" podcast.
I've got a weekly date to go to my friend's house (she has a TV) to watch "Mad Men." And I've been digging episodes of the 1970s-80s journalism drama "Lou Grant" on Hulu.
"Home" by Marilynne Robinson and "Lie Down in Darkness" by William Styron. Both are incredible novels. Also: current issues of The Sun, One Story, and The Boston Review.
