book We can't wait for this one, but we'll have to until June 4: that's when Colum McCann's new book TransAtlantic is out. The author of the extraordinarily good Let the Great World Spin sets TransAtlantic, as the title indicates, between two continents, from 1845 to now, focusing on four generations of women and historical characters from Frederick Douglass to Senator George Mitchell. The author will be at Symphony Space on June 5 to discuss it, 7:30pm, $25.

TV Could there be happier news than the new season of Arrested Development? Highly doubtful. Starts May 26 on Netflix.

We'll be back on Tuesday. Have a happy Memorial Day!
