Anna Merlan

Anna Merlan is a journalist, writer, and recovering record store clerk living in New York City. In the past, she's written for the Uptown Chronicle, a Manhattan news website, and Good Times, an alt-weekly paper in Santa Cruz, California. These days, she can usually be found dying her hair increasingly toxic shades of red or eating one bite of something, spitting it out, then insisting to the nearest person, "Try this, it's horrible!" Sometimes she posts things at, or on Twitter at @annaherself.

A super-skimmable daily digest.
