NPR's Karen Grigsby Bates, doing double duty as Day to Day literary editor, delivers a "short list" about an up-to-the-minute style that's gotten some unexpected respect in old-school academic circles. This report is part of an occasional series of audio riddles produced in cooperation with independent producers at Transom.org.
