In this issue:
"Higher Calling", by Steve Coll: Raising the minimum wage.
ANNALS OF INVESTIGATION
"The Interview", by Douglas Starr: Interrogation techniques and false confessions.
ANNALS OF LAW
"Our Broken Constitution", by Jeffrey Toobin: Did the founders get it wrong?
"Why?", by James Wood: Life, death, and the novel.
THE CURRENT CINEMA
"It’s Cold Outside", by Anthony Lane: Reviews of Inside Llewyn Davis and Frozen.
Also, listen to audio from The New Yorker Festival readings and panel discussions, recorded live in New York City.
Starr and Toobin articles were very informative. I prefer articles that discuss current issues.
It's too bad other read New Yorker issues don't have articles as interesting as these. I get the New Yorker on my iPad but listening allows me to be active while listening.
