High-Fashion Hijabs, Jill Soloway, and Bluesman Blind Joe Death
Modelling can be a tricky business for Muslim women who cover up. Judith Thurman visits Nailah Lymus, the head of a new modelling agency that represents the modestly dressed, and admires the bright, bold hijabs Lymus designs. Jill Soloway, the creator of “Transparent,” joins David Remnick in a discussion about her new show, “I Love Dick.” And two fans of the guitarist John Fahey mourn his difficult life and celebrate his transformational music.
