"The Ambition of the Short Story," Steven Millhauser.

"Liking is for Cowards. Go for what Hurts," Jonathan Franzen.

"How Old Can a 'Young Writer' Be?" Sam Tanenhaus.

"Deep in Suburbia," Charles McGrath, on Chang-rae Lee

"The Myth of Japan's Failure," Eamonn Fingleton.

"A Place to Lay My Heart," Elisabeth Eaves.

"As Not Seen on TV," Pete Wells.

"The Joy of Old Age," Oliver Sacks.
