Jefffrey Eugenides, Roger Angell, Miranda July, Dave EggersGary Shtyengart, A.M. Homes and  Charles D'Ambrosio write about their favorite summer movie memories in The New Yorker


"We’d cobble together an identity—a shoulder pad from “The Road Warrior,” Rambo’s sorry old Army jacket—and go looking for moments of violence. It didn’t matter that our wars were poorly planned and lacked any exit strategy. It didn’t matter that the only real enemy, in the end, was us. We would see these movies and think, That’s my life. That’s the life I’m meant to lead." - Dave Eggers, "Commando"
