Kathryn Edin has a new book coming out!

about unwed fathers. This is my opportunity to tell you guys that 2008′s Promises I Can Keep: Why Poor Women Put Motherhood Before Marriage, by Edin and Maria Kefalas, is probably the best book I’ve read on contemporary marriage and family life. It’s been incredibly illuminating for my work at the pregnancy center. It’s also very moving, and you can really tell that Edin and Kefalas lived with the women they write about, shared the same neighborhoods and built relationships there.

“Why It May Be Impossible to Raise ‘Free-Range Kids’”: Michael Brendan Dougherty
“Bananarama Covering the Sex Pistols Might Be the Punkest Thing Ever”
“In Search of Lost Time”: I review an art show
“Vampire Brats”: I watch “What We Do in the Shadows”
