Dan Nailen previews the Jenny Lewis show – she’s a former member of Rilo Kiley and was featured recently on Morning Edition. And Betsy Burton reviews “The Great Glass Sea” (Grove Press) by Josh Weil…a story about twin brothers who live in the near future where capitalism reigns, so much so that a system of mirrors – a great glass sea – has been invented to transmit light so that night and productivity never fall.

Betsy Burton is the co-owner of The King’s English Bookshop and Dan Nailen blogs about music and culture at SLCene.com.
