Colson Whitehead ’91 has gained a reputation as a literary chameleon, deftly blurring the lines between literary and genre fiction, and using his uncanny abilities to inhabit and reinvent conventional frames in order to explore the themes of race, technology, history, and popular culture that continually resurface in his work. In a country where reading habits and reading publics are still more segregated than we often care to admit, his books enjoy a rare crossover appeal. His first novel, “The Intuitionist,” is a detective story that regularly turns up in college courses; the zombie thriller “Zone One” drew praise from literary critics and genre fiction fans alike; “Sag Harbor,” about black privileged kids coming of age in the 1980s, was a surprise bestseller. In an era when commercial pressure reinforces the writerly instinct to cultivate a recognizable “voice,” his astonishingly varied output, coupled with highly polished, virtuosic prose, makes Whitehead one of the most ambitious and unpredictable authors working today.Beyond the books, Whitehead swims effortlessly in the hyper-connected moment: he maintains an active presence on Twitter, where his sly and dyspeptic observations on the curious and the mundane have gained him a devoted following. A sampling includes sagacious tips for the aspiring writer—“Epigraphs are always better than what follows. Pick crappy epigraphs so you don’t look bad”—and riffs on Ezra Pound: “The apparition of these faces in the crowd / Petals on a wet, black bough / Probably hasn’t been gentrified though.” In the pages of The New York Times Magazine and The New Yorker, he has wryly dissected contemporary mores and the light-speed metamorphoses of language in the age of social media. In a widely shared essay from last year, he parsed the current attachment to the “tautophrase,” as in “you do you” and “it is what it is.” Or Taylor Swift’s popularization of “Haters gonna hate.” Swift makes an easy target, of course, but Whitehead takes aim at the rhetoric of those in power too, and the narcissism in our culture more generally. He’s more gadfly than moralist, but there is a Voltaire-like venom to his sarcasms. “The modern tautophrase empowers the individual,” he observes, “regardless of how shallow that individual is.” Read Full Story
According to Il Giornale newspaper, Lazio are taking various extra steps to ensure their squad is fighting fit, including ‘recovery boots’ – air compression sheaths for the legs to help circulation.Advertisement Read Also: Barcelona stars snub idea of hotel isolation for football returnThe FIGC (Italian Football Federation) has drawn up a protocol with medics and specialists on how clubs can resume training and playing in safety, as the coronavirus pandemic is still very much a present threat.This includes keeping players to their own rooms, changing with no more than three in a room to maintain social distancing, drinking from only their own bottles of water and regularly sanitising the shared team areas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… There are also slightly more old-school techniques to boost health and the immune system too, including a gram of vitamin C and D per day, a micro-dose of aspirin, a daily diet of garlic and chocolate. The newspaper writes this is because garlic keeps the blood pressure low and acts as a natural antibacterial agent and bronchodilator. More pleasant for the players will be the inclusion of chocolate, as it is a mild stimulant and “has mental health benefits during a moment where it is easy to fall into pessimism.” Lazio are said to be preparing a concoction of home remedies to help strengthen their players after the shutdown, including garlic, vitamins and chocolate. Plans are in motion to get Serie A to resume training from May 4, with an idea to play again by May 27-31, starting with the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
