The New Yorker, May 4
198 x 272 mm, 84 pages. New York, USA
The New Yorker brings you current affairs, fiction, long-form journalism, reviews, humour, and goings on about town every week.
This issue leads with The Coronavirus Chronicles, a brilliant series of first-hand reports from ‘inside’ the pandemic: shopkeepers, doctors, graduating med students, museum curators, people awaiting their government stimulus payments and more.
The cover art, ‘Still life’ is by Chris Ware; a rare example of his comic style without a single person in sight.
