It is interesting to see how the corporate world works. Bringing in a new editor in chief tears down the staff and reorganizes with firings and layoffs, to bring in her own people.

Secret Ingredients: The New Yorker Book of Food and Drink
A collection of short and long essays appearing in the New Yorker
magazine, some dating back as far as the 1920’s, all having to do with our
favorite subject – Food. You can expect top authors to be present
when you are reading The New Yorker, and you will not be
disappointed: Anthony Bourdain on dining out, Calvin Trillin
on local delicacies, Nora Ephron on small plates, and some wonderful
fiction by John Cheever, Don DeLillo, Alice McDermot, and Roald Dahl, to
name a few. Humor is represented by Ogden Nash, Dorothy Parker,
Woody Allen, Steven Martin, and S.J. Perelman. The book is a buffet
of flavors; a great read any time of the year.
