On Happiness

“Parent: After talking it over, my wife and I have decided that Oliver would be happier going to a different school next year. Gibbs: What’s your point?” My latest for CiRCE deals with teenage happiness, real and imagined.


My latest for CiRCE is really more of a McSweeney’s piece, but I’ve collected too many rejection letters from that place to send them anything else. Of the piece, I would add this: There is no fashionable big corporate banality which is not a temptation for private education, as well.
