      "June 5 and 12 Part 1 seems fixed now"
      If you could sum up The New Yorker, June 5th and 12th 2017: Part 1 (Margaret Talbot, Philip Roth, Jill Lepore) in three words, what would they be?

      June 5 and 12 Part 1 seems fixed now. At first, it seemed to have just the first Comment but it seems the correct length now

      "Where is the rest of this week's issue?"
      Any additional comments?

      This edition is supposed to be 1 hour and 49 minutes long. It is 7 minutes long. Where is the rest of the issue? Will it get fixed?

      "This week's edition of the New Yorker is missing!"

      I paid for the New Yorker, but this week's edition is not there except for the Comment.

      "This edition is only 7 minutes long!"
      Any additional comments?

      The New Yorker seems to have very few quality controls in place. Every week the edition is either a day late, or there's something totally screwed up like this week, where it's only 7 minutes long, and only includes the first chapter. I've contacted Audible and they've said they don't control any of these things, that it is The New Yorker who submits the content to them. I have tried contacting The New Yorker directly, but no one there is able to help.

      Jeanie B. from the online support said "We don't have access to any of that information. I apologize." I called Condé Nast at 212-286-2860, and no one answers the phone. It is ridiculous how difficult it is to talk with anyone responsible for the problem.

      Once my subscription is up, I will think hard before re-subscribing.
