Cup of Stars
Recommended by Carmen Maria Machado
A newsletter about rejiggered literary classics, transmasculine underpinnings of the plucky heroine, and the failure-limits of graciousness, from table manners to family estrangement.
Writing that boldly disregards normal restraints.
From the Desk of Alicia Kennedy
I’m a writer based in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I send out a weekly essay on issues in food, from politics and climate change to culture and labor, and a weekly podcast. Paid subscribers receive "From the Kitchen," a weekly recipe dispatch.
