Sunday Reading: Publish or Perish

From the forties to the sixties, the New Yorker writer Geoffrey T. Hellman published a series of pieces on the state of the media, many of them personality sketches of editors and executives. In 1948, he profiled Alfred A. Knopf, the publisher who, along with his wife, Blanche, founded one of the most influential book-publishing empires in the country. In “Flair Is the Word,” Hellman offers an absorbing portrait of the colorful publisher and his many moods. Knopf is wary of booksellers, aggrieved by the avarice of certain authors, and invariably obsessed with the quality and curation of the books that his house puts out. Curiously unaffected by the market, he’s a publisher who insists on the primacy of the literary instinct. “Knopf paused to light a cigar,” Hellman writes. “ ‘Life is full of constant sordid surprises,’ he said. ‘Whenever you do anything for art or the glory of God or friendship or a friend’s memory, you find someone across the board looking upon it as a business venture. If you’d thought of it in that light, you’d never have gone into it.’ ”

6 Things I Would Like to Do During Summer 2021 in NYC- My Summer Bucket List.

I’d Beat the heat of the brutally hot summers and enjoy the summers like never before!. A girl wearing goggles is ready to enjoy summers in NYC.Clarita Alave/Pexels. From June to the end of August, we can breathe summer air in the Big Apple city. Last year COVID-19 had put a crimp on many summer's activities in this metropolis city. With control of coronavirus in sight, New York is awaiting us to enjoy New York's vast outdoor space devoted to rooftop bars, parks, waterways, beaches, and whatnot. I have dusted off my bucket list for the activities to do when the heat cracks up. This way, I can resume my fun activities that went on hiatus last year. So, this list will offer a twist to our thwarted plans, and that will keep us entertained for days. But before getting out of town, I'd like to snag my water bottles to keep myself hydrated, put my goggles in my pouch, and slather on sunscreen to enjoy sunbathing.
