Here are this week’s cocktail chatters:

  • Listener chatter from Andy Markowitz‏: Andrew O’Hagan for the London Review of Books: “The Tower,” about the Grenfell Tower fire. It’s deeply and meticulously reported, vividly told, and committed to going where the facts lead—and in doing, challenging the received narrative (and the writer’s own assumptions) about how race, class, and politics played into the disaster and its aftermath. An amazing and heartbreaking read.
  • Emily: Emily chattered about the disproportionate punishment Serena Williams received at the U.S. Open.  She recommends Claudia Rankine for the New York Times Magazine: “The Meaning of Serena Williams.”
  • John: The Field of Blood by Joanne B. Freeman
  • David: The documentary Minding the Gap
