GOOD READS: luxury cruises and waking up during anesthesia

Posted By on Fri, Jan 4, 2013 at 1:41 PM

Welcome back to the GOOD READS blog. Each week, Inlander staffers share five-ish of our favorite stories in hopes you'll love them too. Use them to speed up your Friday afternoon, or bookmark them for your morning coffee over the weekend. Then let us know what you think. Love 'em? Hate 'em? Read anything great lately?

1. "Shipping Out" (David Foster Wallace//Harpers)

This one's a few years old, but still worth every page. We doubt there's ever been a more fascinating take on luxury cruises. (Don't skip the footnotes.)

2. "Public Influence" (Albert Samaha//SF Weekly)

The story of a man who kills himself in front of strangers, strangers who then post about it online.

3. "Awakening" (Joshua Lang//The Atlantic)

Why some people wake up during anesthesia and what the medical community is trying to do about it.

4. "A Pickpocket's Tale" (Adam Green//The New Yorker)

You will never feel safe again.

5. For your ears! Here's a discussion from with Eli Sanders, associate editor at The Stranger, who won a Pulitzer last year for his story "The Bravest Woman in Seattle."
