THE SYLLABUS

A monthly newsletter of suggested reading to guide you through life’s strange, sublime, sorrowful, singular experiences.

What It Is

Five suggestions. Mostly books. For when you find yourself in a situation. Like when you begin to realize that you will someday die. Or when you’ve been betrayed. Or when you are falling in love. Or when you turn thirty. Or when you get a very bad haircut. (And so on.)

The Archive

The full collection of syllabi. What to feed your mind when you: Have impostor syndrome. Travel to Paris. Move to the suburbs. Get pregnant. (And so on.)
