Alex Ross, a music critic for The New Yorker, shares three of his favorite things: a minimalist piece for violin and percussion by the composer Linda Catlin Smith, Willa Cather’s novel “Death Comes for the Archbishop” and the Twitter account @finnegansreader, which tweets every line of James Joyce’s novel “Finnegans Wake” a hundred and forty characters at a time.
