Apropos of nothing, I’ve noticed a lot of interesting and/or entertaining blogging about the New Yorker recently:
–New Yorker fiction 2003-2007: an analysis – “14 writers have accounted for 32% of the fiction in the magazine during that period.”
–How to read the New Yorker in 10 easy steps – an enjoyable essay that will make you want to respond with how you read the New Yorker, you know, if you do.
–The New Yorker and Raymond Carver (one of many insightful discussions of the Dec. 24 issue which included a bio, letters between Carver and his editor Gordon Lish, and the unedited version of “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” retitled as “Beginners.”)
–New Yorker discovers this here Google thing – tech culture meets lit culture = ouch.
