1. Maureen Corrigan on James Lasdun’s new memoir about being cyberstalked, Give Me Everything You Have:

Nasreen’s e-mails become flirtatious.  Lasdun, who presents himself here as a happily married family man, is taken aback and grows cooler. Increasingly bizarre e-mails from Nasreen begin flooding Lasdun’s in-box: manic and eventually threatening, anti-Semitic and obscene. The first truly creepy e-mail reads, in part: “James, …  I’m still unsure why you dislike me so.  I rather liked being your little pup.” Uh oh.  Nasreen goes on to make threats “to ruin him” and displays an inventive flair for doing so.
