What we liked this week
Every week, our critics tell us about the books, TV shows, and films that set their minds racing. As you settle into your weekend, in pursuit of good stories, here's a recap of their most essential picks for what to watch and read:
"In his remarkable 2002 novel, 'The Horned Man,' an academic estranged from his wife goes quietly mad while serving on his college’s sexual harassment committee, imagining that the department’s most legendary womanizer is secretly living in his office and sabotaging his life.
