Handsome young writers

“My name is Zadie Smith, and I am a 38-year-old pathological reader. I would like to say in my defense that I don’t really get the appeal of YOLO. I live many times over. Hypothetical, subterranean lives that run beneath the relative tedium of my own and have the power to occasionally penetrate or even derail it. I find it hard to name the one book that was so damn delightful it changed my life. The truth is, they have all changed my life, every single one of them—even the ones I hated. Books are my version of ‘experiences.’”
What It Means to Be Addicted to Reading: Summer is a wonderful time for the bibliophile.

Jean Toomer, pictured here, was an American poet and novelist and an important figure both in the Harlem Renaissance and the modernism movement of the Lost Generation. His first book Cane, published in 1923, is a synthesis of the ideas and experimentation seen in both the Harlem Renaissance and modernism and is considered by many to be his most significant writing.
He was also a total hottie.
This is a photograph of him when he was quite young.  He also grew a mustache later in life, if that’s your jam.
