Saturday Good Reads


Found under a parking lot a few centuries after his death, Richard III was reburied this week, and Carol Anne Duffy wrote an official poem for him. Peggy Rosenthal discovered doctors prescribing poems. There’s nothing like a writer to insult other writers, and an Aussie did an infographic to show how. And Andrew Solomon in The New Yorker has some advice for young writers that could apply not just to the young.
