This week:

We All Watch In Our Own Way: A Critic Tracks The 'TV Revolution': New Yorker TV critic Emily Nussbaum won't appear on panels pitting TV against movies or books. "Everything is valuable in its own way and they don't need to be in tension with one another," she says.

Smart And Propulsive 'Copperhead' Asks: Can You Outrun Your Family's Sins?: Alexi Zentner's new novel follows a high school football star's efforts to separate himself from his racist family. It's an unsparing story about race, class and the limits of individual possibility.

Satirist Randy Rainbow Uses Show Tunes And Pop Songs To Lampoon Trump: "I always considered song parody kind of cheap," the Emmy-nominated lyricist and performer says. "But ... I've gotten [such a] response from others ... that I'm appreciating it as an art form."
