Morning Bites: Joshua Cohen, The Corrections on HBO, new Atlas Sound, comedy albums, and more

“Describing Joshua Cohen’s wonderful and elliptical novel A Heaven of Others is a bit like attempting to rehash an acid trip—no analysis can quite do justice to the feel of the experience.” – Adam Wilson reviews Joshua Cohen’s A Heaven of Others at Bookforum.

  • Spin picks the 40 greatest comedy albums.  (A certain Vol. 1 editor is a little pissed at the lack of Don Rickles on the list, but what can we do?)
