A weekly series.

Daily Edit: Conversation Piece

Enjoy our Sunday series, Conversation Piece, a NUVO–curated digest of things on the Internet we think you’ll want to talk about.

It’s over! The royal wedding, of course. At this point, you’ve almost certainly read plenty about the spectacle, but if you have room for one more piece this one from The Cut is worth it for a bracingly realistic perspective on what Meghan Markle has to look forward to now that her big day has come and gone.

Scandi candy. Much has been said about the merits of “eating like the French”, but given that the Swedish are far bigger fans of candy (they eat three pounds a year per capita) we can’t help but feel more attracted to their diet. For The New Yorker, Hannah Goldfield explores the sugar-scarfing habits of Swedes, and takes a dip into the pick-and-mix section, herself. Read more, here.

Morissette the musical. As you may have heard, Alanis Morissette’s first musical is set to hit the stage this month. And, though the songs of Jagged Little Pill may have been written 23 years ago, the production presents them is a way that feels relevant and right for now as it chronicles the struggles a family undergoes throughout one year. Read the preview coverage, here.

Being David Lynch. A new photo series by Sandro Miller currently on show at New York’s Joshua Liner Gallery features actor John Malkovich posing as iconic David Lynch characters—and indeed, Lynch himself. Titled Psychogenic Fugue, the surreal set of images capture Malkovich as Twin Peaks’ Dale Cooper, Log Lady, and more. See a collection of the images and read more, here.
