CHINA’S LEFT Peter Hessler’s story about post-pandemic Wuhan is a fine piece of reporting, and I share his faith that one day the truth about the pandemic’s origins will be revealed (“The Sealed City,” October 12th). Hessler refers to “leftists” and “far left” attacks on critics of the Chinese Communist Party’s official version of events. The usage of these terms may inadvertently confuse Western readers, who perhaps more readily associate the left with positions such as anti-capitalism, anti-discrimination, egalitarianism, social justice and welfare, and workers’ rights. But, in Chinese popular discourse, being on the left denotes fierce nationalism, loyalty to the state, and even deeper loyalty to the Party. Its brand of anti-capitalism is only in opposition to the capitalism of the West, and socialism is whatever the Party says it…

goings on about town: this week

NOVEMBER 4 – 10, 2020 New York City’s pay phones are obsolete, and, by early next year, they will also be history—removed to make way for Wi-Fi kiosks. Through Jan. 3, a dozen artists (including Glenn Ligon, Patti Smith, and Jimmie Durham, whose contribution is pictured above) are making creative use of phone booths along Sixth Avenue, from Fifty-first to Fifty-sixth Streets. The project, called “Titan,” was co-curated by Damián Ortega and Bree Zucker, in collaboration with the Kurimanzutto gallery. ART “Making the Met: 1870-2020” The museum takes its hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary as an opportunity for introspection, as well as celebration, in this exhibition charting the evolution of its collection. By arranging some two hundred and fifty art works and artifacts roughly in the order of their acquisition, the show’s organizers, Andrea Mayer and Laura…

tables for two: the odeon

The death knell has been rung, in recent months, for both jeans (luxury sweatpants have deposed them) and New York City (“The hot dog stands outside of Lincoln Center? Finished,” claimed a much tweeted August op-ed in the New York Post). And yet one afternoon not long ago, as I was having lunch outside at the iconic Tribeca restaurant the Odeon, a young woman walking by caught my eye. She wore a crop top, a furry jacket, and jeans, which I suspected were brand new, on account of a detail I had never seen before: not one but two waistbands, a sliver of bare midriff visible between them. She was managing, despite the surgical mask pulled down to her chin, to strut. Before my lunch and a subsequent dinner at the…

comment: countdown

The 2020 Presidential election is likely to smash records. Turnout may well be higher than in any election in the past century. More young people are voting, more people of color are voting, and more people are voting early and by mail. The tallying, too, stands a chance of setting records: in how long it takes for the ballots to be counted, in how widely the results diverge from preëlection predictions, and—if the vote is close—in how fiercely the results are contested in the courts, in the states, in Congress, and in the streets. All this uncertainty has been driving people to horse-race the polls. Liberals, it seems, pay more attention to polls than conservatives do, and some research suggests that, in 2016, preëlection polls helped deliver the White House to…

if u cn rd ths: speed-reading ghislaine

Hours before the final debate between Donald Trump and Joseph Biden, a federal court unsealed the four-hundred-and-sixty-five-page transcript of a deposition given by the British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell in 2016, about the sex-trafficking ring she allegedly ran with Jeffrey Epstein. Those trying to manage their daily news-bingeing couldn’t have known in advance to budget hours for both of these unnerving events. Blinkist, a book-summarizing subscription service with sixteen million users, caters to people who prefer not to sift through nearly five hundred pages. “Almost none of us have the time to read everything we’d like to read,” the app’s Web site says. Blinkist’s “expert readers” mine nonfiction titles to distill them into fifteen-minute audio slabs of what they call “key insights”; recent top downloads include “Fire and Fury,” by Michael…
