A new sport is taking hold, one that involves marshmallows, sticks, and fire.
Grave mistakes have been made in Iraq, but there’s still room for hope. A conversation with New Yorker correspondent Jon Lee Anderson for a fascinating, frank talk about life in Baghdad, U.S. policies as viewed from the street, and how Iraq’s insurgency could possibly be quelled.
Our man in New Hampshire snags a fascinating conversation with the New Yorker’s principal political voice Hendrik Hertzberg about his new book, the president’s 12-step politics, and why the New York Times Book Review should avoid sexing up.
Author of The Tipping Point and a connoisseur of RonCo products, Malcolm Gladwell talks about his writing habits, the war effort, and the glory of being confused for Tommy Lee.
