Molly Young is the literary critic for New York magazine and a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine. Every month on her READ LIKE THE WIND newsletter she drops hot book recommendations, writes a fun intro, and even takes book suggestions from her readers via this public Google Spreadsheet. When she’s not writing or reading she’s probably designing crossword puzzles for the New York Times or working on fun projects such as this Zine in collaboration with her partner Teddy Blanks.
