Lit­tle Boxes

The Week (US) - - Arts 23 - Edited by Caro­line Casey

This es­say an­thol­ogy is mostly about TV and mostly writ­ten by nos­tal­gic 30-some­things, said Colleen Abel in the Min­neapo­lis Star Tri­bune. Still, the es­says “travel thrillingly in style and per­spec­tive.” Ru­maan Alam pro­vides a tongue-in-cheek ode to Very Spe­cial Episodes; V.V. Gane­shanan­than writes about re-watch­ing The Cosby Show af­ter learn­ing that dozens of women had ac­cused Bill Cosby of rape. “Some of the most mov­ing es­says” sim­i­larly con­sider how old shows play in the light of new knowl­edge.
