Do any of you get the New Yorker? I started reading it for Creative Non-Fiction in the fall of junior year, and then my parents got me a subscription for Christmas that year. I love it. Firstly, unlike fashion magazines, it's small enough to roll up and put in your pocket and it doesn't have as many ads. Secondly (or thirdly), I feel like every time I look at an issue, I always find new things. Little articles on restaurants or CDs, what it's like to live in Tomsk - anything.
This past New Yorker had a Talk of the Town by Hendrik Hertzberg - my favourite! - AND a longer piece by Dr Atul Gawande himself. Dr. Gawande wrote one of my favourite books, "Complications," a book that I got one of my best friends for Christmas. I was really really excited (it's hard to explain). So - do you guys get the New Yorker? Do you read it on the bus/train or at home or what? Let me know!
