FROM Melissa Broder
So Sad Today On July 5th, 2012, Melissa Broder tweeted “sad today.” She did it anonymously under the handle So Sad Today. That was the first of many raw, honest and often funny tweets she posted on the account. She quickly drew a Twitter following of more than 300,000 and she remained anonymous for several years. She revealed her identity last year when she decided to write a book of essays. The resulting book is called, “So Sad Today,” just like the Twitter account, and Melissa Broder talks to Madeleine about it.
'Dandelion and Quince,' food and crime, 'All About Eggs' Sarah Lohman talks about the murder and historic recipes that form the backbone of her new book, “Ohio 1910,” and Rachel Khong shares highlights from Lucky Peach’s last cookbook, “All About Eggs.” Michelle Mckenzie tells us how to cook oft-forgotten fruits, veggies and herbs, and Jonathan Gold reviews AR Cucina in Culver City. Plus: raspberries at the market and a special guest DJ set from Alton Brown.
Revisiting showrunner Steven Bochco on his memoir Steven Bochco, the writer-producer behind record-breaking Emmy winners Hill Street Blues, LA Law and NYPD Blue, fought battles with everyone from out-of-control actors to network censors in his long career.
