Jack by Marilynne Robinson review – a Calvinist romance
Radiant and visionary, the fourth Gilead novel explores whether a minister’s prodigal son can be redeemed by loveMarilynne Robinson, having attained over the past four decades the status of literature’s spiritual leader, now expands her acclaimed Gilead trilogy into a quartet with a new novel, Jack. It might perhaps be best described as a Calvinist romance – and certainly it is difficult to imagine any other contemporary writer who could achieve so improbable a conflation of doctrine and feeling.In 2004, 24 years after her debut Housekeeping saw her greeted as a writer of magisterial wisdom and skill, Robinson published Gilead. It takes the form of a single letter written in 1956 by the Rev John Ames to his young son: Ames’s heart is failing, and he wishes to leave behind him an account of his life and faith. The novel is distinguished by an exacting and capacious intelligence, together with an enthralled sensibility that elevates the ordinary – a child’s game, the passage of the midwestern light – to the sublime. Ames is greatly attached to his friend Robert Boughton, a retired minister whose son Jack is the cause of much fatherly sorrow, having absented himself from home and from God. When, towards the end of the novel, this prodigal son returns, he confides the secret of his absence not to his father, but to Ames. Continue reading...

45 Hilarious Tweets That Sum Up Pregnancy
Pregnancy is often described as “beautiful,” “miraculous” and “joyful.” But the words “exhausting,” “painful” and “scary” also tend to come up. In short, it’s a rich and varied experience and one that is fodder for many hilarious and relatable tweets from the funny parents of Twitter. To showcase the highs and lows, we’ve rounded up 45 hysterical tweets that sum up pregnancy.

Boris Johnson is delaying the inevitable again – and watching as Covid-19 surges | Polly Toynbee
The prime minister’s inadequate new measures are a product of his reckless nature. They endanger businesses – and livesCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageThere’s so much deja vu, you have to pinch yourself. The difference in this particular version of Groundhog Day is that Boris Johnson learns nothing from his mistakes. Last time, lockdown came too late, thousands of lives might have been saved and delay only prolonged the outbreak. Yesterday, Rishi Sunak said, “We must learn to live without fear”, as he cast thousands of furloughed workers on to the mercies of universal credit.The speed of rule-relaxing has led to dizzying and contradictory advice. It’s only a matter of weeks since Johnson was bullying people back to work in their offices, with the Telegraph darkly warning, “Go back to work or risk losing your job”, while pressure was put on civil servants to flock back to their offices, no matter how well they worked from home. Office workers, however, balked at putting the survival of Pret and Starbucks ahead of their own. Continue reading...

I scour cafes for that wifi sweet spot. Because who wants to be a bunch of pixels? | Hannah Jane Parkinson
An important work call or an urgent need to access a Spotify playlist – these are not jobs for mobile dataMy kingdom for a working wifi spot. For that sweet fan of a full-strength signal icon, bold and black; the internet equivalent of a peacock’s tail. Whoever it was who jokingly added wifi to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs – now a common trope on social media – was correct.Don’t get me wrong: sometimes it is bliss to spurn the constant connectivity we are all expected to adhere to these days (I have written about the contentment to be found on airplane mode). But it is human nature to want what we cannot have, and in no area is this more true than wifi. There have been times when I have been desperately scanning the windows of cafes and arts venues for that telling yin-yang logo, just as one bursts into a pub to use the loo. Continue reading...

Last orders! The origins of the word 'curfew'
Pubs and restaurants are closing early in England as part of what is being called a ‘curfew’ - but where does the word come from?In June Boris Johnson told the country it was our patriotic duty to go to the pub and spread the coronavirus: that having been an effective message, the government is now mandating the early closure of pubs and restaurants in what is being called a “curfew”, as though it were the public and not the government who were a bunch of unruly children.“Curfew” is a contraction of the original French couvre-feu, meaning literally “cover the fire”. In medieval Europe, it was common for a bell to be rung at a certain hour in the evening (often eight o’clock) indicating that all fires must be covered or put out, in order to prevent domestic fires from accidentally burning down whole villages or towns.

'I have a sense of urgency': Sufjan Stevens wakes from the American dream
The cult singer-songwriter made his name as a whimsical chronicler of US history. Now he’s made an electropop album about his country’s evilsThe Oscars were an ordeal for Sufjan Stevens. “Honestly, one of the most traumatising experiences of my entire life,” the songwriter half-laughs, half-groans. The event was, he says, “a horrifying Scientology end-of-year prom” representative of “everything I hate about America and popular culture”.He had never paid much attention to them before being nominated in 2018. Mystery of Love – his bittersweet folk ballad, written for Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name – was up for best original song and Stevens had been invited to perform. His devoted fans celebrated this appearance as a moment of long-overdue mainstream recognition for the spotlight-shy then-42-year-old; 26 million viewers were watching at home, after all. But for the artist himself, shrinking into his pink-and-black striped blazer as Hollywood A-listers schmoozed around him, there was not much to celebrate. “I didn’t want to have anything to do with that world and that culture,” he says. “I don’t want to be part of any room full of adults hemming and hawing over plastic trophies.” Continue reading...
