This Week’s Best Profile

A good recommendation from Meanderings reader MW. Paul Krugman in his bathing suit:

Here Krugman wears the same shirt for days, a short-sleeved plaid cotton shirt, and bathing trunks. He sits in the room where they eat their breakfast, which has a long window open to the sea. He types at a tiny table that folds out of a closet, which requires him to sit more or less inside the closet, but this is helpful, because the light can be so bright in the room that it becomes blinding. If he turns his head, he can see the sky.

Larissa MacFarquhar’s profile of the Nobel Prize winner does the two things any great profile should: informs and entertains. Enjoy.
