The New Yorker
I read voraciously and magazines are my favorite meal. Of the dozens I look at, my favorite magazine is The New Yorker. I love the high quality of its prose and the wide range of its subjects. I have a subscription and read every issue cover-to-cover.
The new issue (3/28) has three articles on fashion. One on Christian Louboutin, another on the inventor of Spanx (Sara Blakely), and a third on Helena Rubinstein. It also has interesting articles on the Japan disaster and the Barry Bonds trial.
My favorite line is in the Christian Louboutin article. The article describes how delightful the shoes Louboutin designs are; it also says how expensive they are ($400-$6,000). One woman, when her husband reviewed her credit-card bill and asked about a large charge, told him that Louboutin was her gynecologist. Amazingly, he believed her!
What are your favorite magazines?
