THERE ARE AMERICAN FLAGS on school windows, on cars, on porch swings; it is the year I bring Bob Dylan home for Thanksgiving.
—"North of," by Marie-Helene Bertino is this week’s featured story from Recommended Reading. It’s about bringing Bob Dylan home for Thanksgiving, yes, but also about a lot of other things like family, success, happiness, and our relationships to each other. Selected by the notable Jim Shepard (you can find his other work in publications like McSweeney’s and Granta), we think it’s an incredible read. Get into it!
