1. How to Be Famous / Chrono Trigger.

Emily found Caitlin Moran’s How to Be Famous to be both hilarious and politically necessary. Michael went on a 16-bit nostalgia binge with Michael P. Williams’s Chrono Trigger. They talk about bad sex in the #metoo era, the art of translation, persistence in the face of catastrophe, and burning out on reading.
