What the Mueller report portrays, in numbing legalese and revealing footnotes, is a breathtaking culture of lying and impunity, distrust and double-dealing. And Donald Trump is its greatest beneficiary. http://nyer.cm/OEGPLFp
Susan Choi’s thrillingly interesting new novel, “Trust Exercise,” toys with the themes of appropriation, and with the reader. http://nyer.cm/jk66tAW
According to the Mueller report, the former national-security adviser Michael Flynn said that Donald Trump repeatedly asked him to get Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. http://nyer.cm/KJN7gNd

The Mueller report contains a cast of characters stranger than fiction: a Russian real-estate mogul, a British music producer, a convicted felon, an “author who holds a doctorate in political science” (hint: Jerome Corsi), and, of course, Jared Kushner. http://nyer.cm/Mi6prXJ
The Mueller report reveals that Donald Trump’s campaign associates were actively pursuing Hillary Clinton’s private e-mails during the period when the Russians were hacking into them. http://nyer.cm/rvxnbOv

Before Lucas Hnath’s plays found critical acclaim, he worked a day job to pay the rent, and wrote in his windowless office until 2 A.M. Now, his name is one that theatregoers can’t escape. http://nyer.cm/ToFOUFG
Why was Donald Trump so afraid of Robert Mueller and his investigation? A confrontation described in the Mueller report could shed more light on the true source of the President’s fear. http://nyer.cm/MiSQUg5
Beyoncé’s “Homecoming” is a Gesamtkunstwerk, emphasis on twerk. http://nyer.cm/JbOSAUe

Dorothy Wickenden and @laurenzcollins discuss the potential political consequences of the Notre-Dame tragedy. http://nyer.cm/zy8SWTR

Erik Prince, the billionaire founder of Blackwater, provided funding for a tech adviser to confirm the authenticity of e-mails believed to be Hillary Clinton’s. http://nyer.cm/0NPJN12
At the rebooted Playboy Club, you can attend a fund-raiser for a dog-rescue charity, hear a Juilliard-trained Playboy Bunny sing standards with a jazz band, or both. http://nyer.cm/kNUOqLS
To Victor Hugo, the Paris skyline was once “more jagged than a shark’s jaw, upon the copper-colored sky of evening.” Now there is a smoking void. http://nyer.cm/BcgxC22
In 2004, Steve Wood was deployed to Guantánamo Bay, to protect what he was told was the U.S. military’s highest-value detainee. Before long, he began to wonder whether he was actually protecting one of the government’s darkest secrets. http://nyer.cm/O2VPfNs

At a press conference this morning, the Attorney General William Barr sounded more like President Trump’s personal lawyer than like the country’s chief law-enforcement officer. http://nyer.cm/efofdoY
The Mueller report was released to the public this morning, and the Attorney General William Barr has already offered a vigorous defense of Donald Trump's behavior. http://nyer.cm/DydJxVj
Why have so many millennials developed houseplant fever? http://nyer.cm/wGg4LGs
Francis Cissna has been Donald Trump’s director of Citizenship and Immigration Services for nearly two years, and during that time he has enacted the harshest immigration policies in a century. http://nyer.cm/HdPSYqB
Notre-Dame was once less valued than its sister churches due to its hodgepodge of architectural qualities. But this patchwork proved, in the end, central to its romance. http://nyer.cm/i1TXglf

Lucas Hnath’s new play “Hillary and Clinton” is inspired by the Clinton family, but it is not a Broadway bio-pic. Rather, it uses reality as a springboard for larger ethical questions. http://nyer.cm/SiTiT9R
