This Monday, I have curated some stuff for you. Hope you enjoy the pieces.

Here is Margaret Atwood on George Orwell, and his enduring classic, Animal Farm. “[It] is one of the most spectacular emperor-has-no-clothes books of the 20th century…” Atwood writes.

Here is a classic from the archives of the New Yorker. Truman Capote meets, and writes about Marlon Brando. “I’m supposed to be on a diet,” Brando tells Capote . “But the only things I want to eat are apple pie and stuff like that.”

And, to sign off, a perceptive, finely nuanced piece by Zadie Smith on the difference between pleasure and joy.
