In "The Spasm Band," readers are taken on a fascinating journey through New Orleans, tracing the legend of jazz's creation by a group of ragtag white kids in the late 1800s. Rich Cohen's exploration of the city's musical soul captures the vibrant, often overlooked, origins of this beloved genre.

Exclusive interviews with actor Matthew Fox, expressing his desire to leave the "Lost" island, and B.J. Novak, the multifaceted talent from "The Office," add layers of celebrity intrigue. Fiction, too, finds its place, with Ethan Coen's "Love to All" weaving a tale of love triangles among academics in liberal arts.

Pictorials bring a tropical flavor to this edition.
