The New Yorker is a readers' magazine. Articles range from short Talk of the Town pieces to in-depth explorations of politics and world affairs. Short reviews of restaurants, movies, and the arts in Goings On About Town can be quickly skimmed, while, at the back of the book, longer, richer reviews of selected books, plays, and movies can be read at a more leisurely pace. And the dozen or so cartoons in each issue offer their sheer wit and entertainment. Subscribe today.
