Donning the black hat

Discussing the nature of villainy with Chuck Klosterman

Over the past decade, Chuck Klosterman has become one of the preeminent voices in the world of pop culture analysis. He has combined an encyclopedic breadth of knowledge with insightful wit to create his own unique voice - a voice he has used to dive beneath the shallow surface of our cultural waters and explore the seemingly-mundane with passion and precision.

He has written a number of popular essay collections that have explored diverse topics spanning the cultural landscape - the realms of television, movies, music and sports. Whether it's an exploration of the true nature of Zack Morris's Bayside, a breakdown of the deeper meaning behind the 1980s rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics or an in-depth interview with Britney Spears, Klosterman has repeatedly found ways to take the pulse of the zeitgeist and report on it with a style and panache that is his and his alone.

And then you've got someone like Chris Kluwe.

Lifesaving Lessons'

Linda Greenlaw's latest offering a touching tale

Many people dream about being a parent. There are entire marketing industries that feed off that dream. Photographers, toys, cribs and bunk beds. For Linda Greenlaw, it seemed as though that dream would never be realized, and it was something she was more or less at peace with. But her dream of motherhood was realized in a way she never expected when she became the guardian of a troubled teen who had been sexually abused by her uncle. This is the main topic of Greenlaw's newest book, 'Lifesaving Lessons: Notes from an Accidental Mother' (Viking, $26.95).
