Arianne Cohen Tells Tall Tales

Arianne Cohen ’03 celebrates “life from on high” in a new book that discusses tall people's perspectives and prospects.

Arianne R. Cohen '03, a  Ledecky Undergraduate Fellow at Harvard Magazine in 2001-2002, has just published The Tall Book: A Celebration of Life from on High (Bloomsbury), as noted in the current issue. The Boston Globe gave the book a long and favorable review on June 28, amusingly illustrated by a photograph of basketball star Yao Ming towering over his former coach, Jeff Van Gundy.

Cohen's Undergraduate columns for the magazine covered topics such as women's studies, students' fierce antipathy to getting enough sleep (widely cited and even distributed to students on other campuses--to little if any effect), and the elements of campus dating and romance.
