Digging deeper

Thursday 29 January

This week’s not quite catastrophic amount of snow in New York has left Monocle’s Tristan McAllister questioning whether the media whirlwind that built it up was just a load of hot air.

As those who live to the northeast of New York dig out after the so-called “history-making” blizzard of 2015, I can’t help but think I was duped. Here in Manhattan we saw snow accumulations that didn’t really push beyond…

Book smarts

Monday 12 January

Somehow it was entirely in keeping with the quiet public persona of the best-selling Japanese author Haruki Murakami that he should surprise his fans last week by announcing via his publishers Shinchosha that he would be…

Facing the music

Wednesday 7 January

With today’s music producers relying on technology to create pristine and pitch-perfect pop, Monocle’s Alice Bloch is inspired to hear that musician PJ Harvey is putting her eccentricities on show for her latest album.
