world of wonder

Every December we plan to give you a holiday-season surprise, and this year that treat comes in the form of a preview of wonder.land, the National Theatre of London’s social media–era update of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (“Dream State,” page 201). It’s a mesmerizing production staged by the theater’s artistic director, Rufus Norris, and written by playwright Moira Buffini, with songs by Damon Albarn of Blur and Gorillaz. What makes wonder.land—you say the “dot,” by the way—so inventive is its central conceit, which substitutes a smartphone screen for the notion of the looking glass. Aly, a lonely, alienated teenager of mixed parentage, creates a blonde Amazonian avatar that goes on to meet all manner of fantastical creatures in cyberspace. Fairy tales have, of course, always…

change to believe in

VOGUE’s September issue is always a conversation starter, and this year the chatter centered on diversity in fashion, culture, and politics. There was our cover star, Beyoncé (“perfect choice,” wrote Karen McGinnis of Bristol, RI), our Empire portfolio (“stunning,” wrote Carly Ryan of Royal Oak, MI), our profiles of Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Daily Show host Trevor Noah—not to mention Liya Kebede’s windswept turn in the fashion spread “Hustle & Bustle.” A few readers noted Queen Bey’s refusal to sit for an interview—as did The New York Times: “Why has Beyoncé gone mum?” Weeks later the Lupita Nyong’o October cover appeared, and race was topic A again. “Is VOGUE’s leadership proof that fashion is finally shedding its monochromaticism?” asked the New York Post. We hope so. A BLACK WOMAN ON…

DOMHNALL Gleeson It is Domhnall (pronounced “Doan-al”) Gleeson’s fate to be thought of as a nice fellow. Offscreen, colleagues like Bill Nighy hail his courtesy and sense of fun; on-screen, he broke out playing the idealistic Levin in Anna Karenina. Small wonder the amiable 32-year-old Irish actor (“The Big Tease,” page 222) is so tickled by his two big Christmas blockbusters: In Alejandro González Iñárritu’s revenge drama The Revenant, he plays a stolid frontiersman who gradually loses his decency, while in Star Wars: The Force Awakens he’s an out-and-out baddie. “My General Hux,” he tells me by phone from Dublin, “is not a people person. He likes to destroy things.” Not that Gleeson’s gone completely over to the Dark Side, mind you. He shines as Saoirse Ronan’s sturdy small-town Irish beau…

a wanderer’s heart

I am the creation of two women: my mother and my grandmother. Both are Turkish and Muslim, and there, pretty much, the similarity ends. Though always close, and from a similar background, they could not be more different in personality, physique, and style. My mother, dark-haired, dark-eyed, and delicately built, is a diplomat (now retired); well-educated, Westernized, secular, modern, urban. She has a soft, kind heart, a great passion for music, and a tendency to panic easily. Had circumstances permitted, she would have become a professional musician, composing songs and playing oud, rather than spending years in the Turkish Foreign Ministry, where she was not the happiest, to tell the truth. Grandma, on the other hand, is more Eastern, more traditional, more irrational, less educated. With olive-green eyes, fair skin, and…

arms and the man

Reports of a shooting at a community college in Oregon.” My editor is reading aloud from Twitter. In our one-room office with a view of the Empire State Building, I and the other writers and editors at The Trace— a news site dedicated to gun violence and policy—begin refreshing for updates. Reports of someone roaming a school with a gun have become common, but these episodes usually end in arrest, which is what I’m expecting when my editor speaks again. “Ten people dead at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg.” Here we go. I snap into motion and start gathering details for the stories we’ll be posting over the next few hours. Where’d he get the gun? If he (and it’s almost always a he) armed himself legally—as at least eleven perpetrators of…
