Magical Thinking

I love this Smart Set column by Jessa Crispin on magical thinking.

Ostensibly two book reviews, the piece starts and ends with a discussion of the “mystical marriage” of W.B. Yeats and Maud Gonne (“It is to be a bond of the spirit only”), and their participation in the Order of the Golden Dawn, something I’ve always been fascinated by (how could you not be?).

    Yeah, she’s so great. Love her Smart Set column. The number of books I have read because of her reviews is almost embarrassing. She should get a commission.
