Tidbits: David Levine--RIP
Sad to hear today that David Levine recently died. I used to love his caricatures for The New York Review of Books. They were always one of the highlights of reading the reviews. Coincidentally, I decided to renew my subscription after a hiatus of several years. It used to cost an arm and a leg when I lived in Japan, but it turns out to be ridiculously cheap here--about the price of a decent bottle of wine for two years--and the writing is so good. Having just decided to cancel all English-language TV in the house, I'm hoping I'll have the time to read it all each month.
