It’s Sunday afternoon — your last chance to read all that stuff you meant to read last week before Monday brings a new deluge of things you will want to read. Below, some of our recommendations:

Girl, Uninterruptible” by Jim Windolf (Vanity Fair): The refreshing rise of Jennifer Lawrence.

The Rules of the Game” by Anne Helen Petersen (The Virginia Quarterly Review): A look at the Hollywood publicity machine’s first hundred years.

Goon Squad could have been better!” by Jennifer Egan (Salon): The Pulitzer Prize-winning author on the dangers of praise.

Guest Lists: Mykki Blanco” by Larry Fitzmaurice (Pitchfork): The Harlem rapper talks about Fiona Apple, Marilyn Manson, JFK Airport, and slimy green linens (technically from last week, but still good.)
