Dan and Eric talk about how tired they tend to get every April; Toobin's reporting on William Barr (is he just doing Trump's bidding? All signs point to yes.); Jonathan Dee's excellent review of a Nelson Algren biography; Pat Barker and her harrowing yet witty short story; the Isaac Chotiner/Bret Easton Ellis interview that went viral; and Hilton Als' very critical review of Sam Gold's production of King Lear.
