This lady has a way of turning my crank with her thoroughly bibliographed articles in NY Times. The latest is definitely a keeper. It’s about a possible connection between facial expressions related to speaking different languages and happiness triggers. How can you not like that kind of research?

Olivia Judson does a facility for seeing animal characteristics in ways that few science writers do. It’s part biology, microbiology, evo-devo and . . .

And her writing is direct and pithy and teasing. Just the way for an interesting woman to be!
