Every Wednesday, we’re giving you a deeper look into what makes the minds behind Kempt tick. We call it: The Kempt Five.

Jack. Anjelica. This. —P.L.U.

David Sedaris’s New Yorker Piece. “About his sister’s death. I’m ordinarily not a big Sedaris fan, but this piece hooked me from the start and I just kept reading. He’s usually at his best when the material is dark (see also: Holidays on Ice), and he handles the puzzling, tragic family suicide with a keenly observed wit and grace. Well worth your time.” —P.L.U.

It’s an essential autumnal adventure—and one of the easier ones to plan if you’ve got access to a car or a train upstate. Wear some flannel. Eat some apples. Drink some cider. Breath in some crisp fall air. Feel alive again… that sort of thing. This past weekend we managed to find a brewery nestled in the rolling apple hills to finish a hard day’s work in the orchards by drinking the afternoon away. ’Tis the season.” —N.B.
