Austrian writer Adalbert Stifter's 1845 novella Rock Crystal is the seemingly simple tale of two children who get lost in a snowfall on Christmas Eve. But author Susan Choi says the story perfectly captures humanity at its humblest and most resilient.
Poet W.H. Auden was born in England 100 years ago today. Edward Mendelson, Auden's literary executor, marks the occasion with a new collection, Selected Poems.
