Rachel Bloom’s Twisted Comedy

nytimes.com — Quietly and without much notice, last fall the CW network aired what was most likely broadcast television's first-ever depiction of anal waxing. The scene, on the show "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend," was not explicit, yet neither was it ambiguous. A young woman in her bathroom, wearing a short robe, leans forward and then reaches toward her backside with a wax strip in her hand.

The Displaced: Hana

nytimes.com — At 4:45 in the morning on a Saturday in early August, stars were still bright in the sky above a refugee settlement in rural Lebanon where Hana Abdullah, a 12-year-old girl from Syria, now lives.

Motherhood, Screened Off

nytimes.com — My mother's address book is one of the small visual details of my childhood that I can perfectly conjure, although I am sure no photograph of it exists. Fake-leather-bound, filled with her formal, spidery script, it was, to me, barely legible, with addresses crossed out and replaced with new ones as friends' lives shifted.
