In this week’s New Yorker

August 14, 2011


The highlights begin with Christoph Niemann’s timely cover illustration entitled “S.O.S.” (above) and continue with the issue’s centerpiece, a long definitive take-out on Michele Bachmann by political reporter Ryan Lizza. Certainly for anyone who suspects that the Minnesota Congresswoman who wants to be president is an intellectual lightweight unafraid to lie, inflate her credentials, commune with racist ideologues and right-wing nutjobs, and shove her conservative brand of Christian proselytizing down anyone’s throat, Lizza delivers the confirmation in calm, well-researched detail.

There’s also a fascinating article by Tom Bissell about Jennifer Hale, an actress whose vast experience doing voice-overs for video games has led people to regard her as the Meryl Streep of her field.

And then of course, the cartoons, including this one by Roz Chast. I love her greeting cards!

Plus, did you know she’s designed a drinking glass for Fishs Eddy??? You can get a look at them online here.
