In this week’s New Yorker

November 6, 2011


Last week’s Cartoon Issue was pretty disappointing. This week’s issue had, for one thing, much better cartoons.



But in addition there were three absorbing features: James Wood on what personal libraries have to say about us; D. T. Max on a young pianist new to me named Helen Grimaud; and the great war reporter Jon Lee Anderson on the last days of Qaddafi. I also enjoyed Alec Wilkinson’s Talk of the Town piece about Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings on the road and Hendrik Hertzberg’s editorial mulling over the contrasting political strategies of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street.
