Drink a Rum

In the January issue of New Criterion, our favorite doctor takes us on a fascinating tour around two Parisian train stations, the city’s most famous cemetery, and the island of Haiti.

We would like to wish our readers a happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year.

On this occasion I drank too much rum too quickly and the next morning I felt like a bear who had been stung in the head while trying to extract honey from a hive in a tree. What better way to overcome a hangover than to take a walk in Père Lachaise, the cemetery not a hundred yards from our apartment, the most visited cemetery in the world but never overcrowded?
