Caitlin Flanagan reviews College Girls: Bluestockings, Sex Kitten and Co-eds by Lynn Peril Norton in the April Atlantic. Flanagan, whom we quite like, makes the dubious case that leaving home is harder on girls than on boys.

James Fallows weighs in on a reality show in China, Ying Zai Zhongguo, or Win in China, which is not unlike The Apprentice. He learned of the series “from a Chinese-American friend, Baifang Schell, who was involved in the production.” Schell’s married to Orville Schell, the dean of the J-School at UCBerkley. Oddly, FBLA can’t think of many American reality shows with that kind of imprinteur. Fallows went to China for the final episode, which he found fascinating, but it’s unlikely he’s watched very many other reality shows. There’s a video segment with business types praising the show against a music track so soul-stirringly uplifting and gloppily romantic that it could be an promo for a very special Oprah segment.
