In this week’s New Yorker

April 1, 2011

My favorite things:

1. David Grann’s long, riveting, bewildering reporting piece about assassination, conspiracy, corruption, and self-destruction in Guatemala.

2. Colin Jost’s hilarious Shouts & Murmurs piece “Explaining Your Time Warner Bill.”

3. Two astonishing poems: a beautiful tender one by Tennessee Williams, never before published, and one by Sophie Cabot Black, a poet new to me.

4. The delightful cover by Edward Koren (below).
