We here at the Independent love every piece we run. There are no winners or losers. Having said that, here are July’s winners.

5 Most Popular Posts: July 2015

  1. “Atticus Finch Still Walks a Righteous (If Winding) Path.” Author and attorney Talmage Boston’s thoughtful essay on why the beloved character’s sentiments in Go Set a Watchman shouldn’t be judged by 2015 standards drew scores of Harper Lee fans. (And likely provoked some soul-searching, too.)

  2. A review of The Dorito Effect: The Surprising New Truth about Food and Flavor by Mark Schatzker. Michael Causey wrote an excellent critique of this exposé on Big Food, Big Fat, and the big mess our diets have become. Now, who’s up for some Cheetos? (Mmm…Cheetos…)

  3. Bedtime Stories. What are TV producer Russ Hodge and author Leslie Pietryzk reading before lights-out? Apparently, you really, really wanted to know.

  4. “Ka-Ching!” Our piece announcing that we’re now officially a paying market — $25 a pop, baby! — snagged a record number of eyes in July. Does this mean you writers out there don’t want to starve for your art?

  5. “Alan Cheuse: A Reflection.” E.A. Aymar’s most recent column — in which he wished the writer a full recovery from a horrific car accident — struck a chord with Cheuse admirers around the country. Sadly, Alan Cheuse passed away the day after the piece ran. He was 75.
