    Ah, 35, that mystical line between emerging writers and… old ones. Though I move ever further in the wrong direction from said line I am nonetheless happy to celebrate this latest crop of “young” writers, announced today by the National Book Foundation, as they contemplate the imminence of their late thirties. Congratulations, and may you never stop emerging! (And may your 5 Under 35 party be as good as the one that was hosted by Natasha Lyonne—IYKYK)
