One thought on “Bio

  1. Dear Mr Sasson,

    I really enjoyed your recent essay in The New Republic. I found it more satisfying than Mr Kristof’s followup editorial (http://nyti.ms/1shCKwG). I did my graduate work in Middles Eastern studies, and I couldn’t have said it better. I was also delighted to read that you’ve worked at the Sackett Street Workshop (I took one of Julia’s classes in college over a summer break).

    Cheers.

    Joe
