Jeremy Irons, the nemesis of a generation of movie heroes, explains the secret to playing bad believably. Kurt Andersen asks English folk-punk Billy Bragg if he’ll miss the late Margaret Thatcher, the nemesis of a generation of musicians, novelists, and artists in Great Britain. Novelist Meg Wolitzer expresses sympathy for teenagers (nemeses to countless generations of adults) in her new book The Interestings. And a Baltimore hairdresser shakes up classical scholarship by recreating elaborate Roman hairdos for the first time in millennia.
