Fun list. Do I get an assist on #2?!

Where does Newjack rank among these?

Oh man, I forgot Newjack. I should put it on another Top 5. My only wish is that Newjack would've been MORE pivotal.

People reading this, go read Newjack. It is by Ted Conover. It is amazing.

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
