The last great problem

Hey, The Believer was kind enough to put a link to my old article, “The Last Great Problem,” on their front page. I wrote this article because Heidi Julavits asked me to write an article about books about the Riemann Hypothesis and books about people who died trying to climb Mount Everest, which I thought was a really strange idea, but which turned out to be a great idea, and now I think Heidi Julavits is a genius. And The Believer is really good and you should read it. Here’s Steve in The Believer on how and where to read contemporary poetry. And here’s Douglas in The Believer on the Fall’s Peel Sessions.
