A Tug at the Archive: Leah’s 2013 Favorites

0

Ah, the list. The end of the year always means that the reading public is beleaguered with lists, each purporting to tell us the best and worst contribution to culture over the past twelve months. I’m always torn with lists; on one hand, I find them gratifying glimpses into one person’s particular tastes and on the other, I find them annoyingly general and subjective. With this in mind, my "favorites"* from 2013 took a humanist, or personal, perspective, or explored the complexities of the creative personality.
