Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Books: Two terrific novels were published this week: “The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois,” by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers and “The Women of Troy,” by Pat Barker…Movies: No, I am not going to “Candyman” or “Free Guy.” The only decent movie in cinemas right now is “Respect”…TV/Streaming: You won’t believe how bad Nicole Kidman’s “Nine Perfect Strangers” on Hulu is…Luckily, Hulu’s “McCartney 3, 2, 1” is pretty great…Music: Lorde and Billie Eilish can huff and puff but it’s still Aaliyah and Nas who are atop the album charts…Sports: Watching the Paralympic Games is for me much more inspiring than the Olympics were.
