Wonderful writing

This is a fantastic issue of The New Yorker. My only problem is with the recording. It sounds as if The New Yorker uses some kind of advanced computer voice recorder to record the words. Sometimes it's not as apparent as others. But it's fairly distracting. I would prefer just a regular, old human.
