The New Yorker–September 13, 2004

The New Yorker for September 13th has some great stuff.

Calvin Tomkins’ “Recollections” about his childhood summers in the Adirondacks and the first girl he made out with is funny, heartbreaking and poignant. I enjoyed it quite a lot and was moved by the ending.

I was enraptured by David Remnick’s profile of Al Gore (“The Wilderness Campaign”). Enlightening and entertaining, Remnick gets just a little bit under the skin of this interesting introvert.

There is also a short story by Marilynne Robinson (oh how I loved her book “Housekeeping”) which I have yet to read.
