There’s nothing like a good article to stimulate “prewriting” (or at least give you something to bring up at dinner with your in-laws). The Anniversary Issue (February 14 & 21) of The New Yorker stood out to us as particularly full of great investigative journalism, contemporary poetry, and humor. Here’s a list of our favorite reads:
Confessions of a Juggler
Motherhood and show biz after forty.
by Tina Fey
The Order of Things
The problem with college rankings.
by Malcolm Gladwell
Middlemarch and Me
What George Eliot teaches us.
by Rebecca Mead
A former Scientologist speaks out.
by Lawrence Wright
“The Other Place”
a short story by Mary Gaitskill
by Ellen Bryant Voigt
“The Rhythms Pronounce Themselves Then Vanish”
by Dean Young
by Richard Wilbur
Hop on over to read , if not all of these, many free articles from the newest issue online.
