Overview Sam Stringbini, the youngest son in a family of circus performers, is living every kid's dream, except for the fact that he is no good on the high wire, trapezes freak him out and magic mystifies him. When the Triple Top Circus is threatened by repeated acts of sabotage, Sam is the number one suspect. To clear his name, Sam enlists the help of his cousin, Harriet, and discovers that, while he may never be a sword-swallower or a lion-tamer, he just might be able to save the circus. Buckel, the fourth of five brothers, grew up in upstate New York.
His eldest sibling raised hogs and calves, and Buckel would name the animals; he called one cow King. When he was around 6, he came home one day to find that King was gone. The freezer was full of meat.
Buckel was quiet and grave, and took things seriously even for a child. Jesse Barron is a writer in Los Angeles. He last wrote for the magazine about the activist short-seller Andrew Left. She was frustrated. Her ambitions for an academic career were set aside, she had four small kids and she did not want to go back to substitute-teaching third graders. Her husband, an art historian, encouraged her to open a small gallery. Sam Dolnick is an assistant managing editor at The Times. He last wrote for the magazine about Dr. John Sarno. The house where Esmond Bradley Martin was murdered — stabbed to death one afternoon in February, in a still-unsolved killing apparently linked to a property dispute — was always an object of local curiosity.
Martin and his wife, Chryssee, had the house built to their specifications in the s. It was a purposefully time-warped anachronism, like its owner. Martin arrived in Kenya in the s as a sort of 19th-century-style gentleman scholar, underwritten by a 19th-century fortune: His great-grandfather, Henry Phipps Jr.
When climate or circumstances demanded otherwise, he at least accessorized with a silk handkerchief. His fastidiousness suggested a hermetic life that was the opposite of the one he lived.

Charles Homans is the politics editor for the magazine. Picture a boy, 8 years old, assisting his parents in a strange and somber task. In their gracious home in Vienna, they are throwing family documents into the fireplace, trying to erase their Jewish identities in the flames. Now the boy, about to throw another document into the fire, stops: This one has a gold seal and a photo affixed. The man in the photo, he learns when he shows it to his parents, is his maternal grandfather, who once lived in the United States.
The document is a revelation, proof that he had become an American citizen before returning to Vienna, and it will be their salvation. A psychologist might analyze the story through the prisms associated with what researchers call positive life outcomes. The boy was intelligent. Was he distractible, his urgent task so easily interrupted by a shiny bit of foil?
Or was it the opposite — was he a child who, even in a moment of panic, could pause, wait, show self-restraint? Susan Dominus is a staff writer for the magazine. She last wrote an essay about grief as a muscle memory. In , at age 38, Ed Sadlowski, an unrepentant progressive, ran for the presidency of the 1.
But rather than stir up hostility toward others who were also struggling, he went after those in power — not just the steel company owners but also the stodgy union heads who were disconnected from their members. Sadlowski grew up in South Chicago, a corner of the city then beholden to the multitude of steel behemoths belching smoke and sulfur along the Calumet River. Soon after he dropped out of high school, he went to work at U. He came by his work honestly; his father worked as a millwright at Inland Steel.
