Reading The New Yorker you feel welcomed into a kind of club. People are insightful, witty and they manage to slip in devastating pieces of information on disasters like Guantanamo Bay. You rub shoulders with the great writers of the present - Salman Rushdie, Alice Munro - but you also feel the silvery echo of such past writers as J.D. Salinger and John Cheever. We are exceptionally lucky to welcome contemporary writers from The New Yorker to Auckland: Judith Thurman, biographer of Isak Dinesen and Colette, whose writing is never less than pellucid; James Surowiecki, whose Financial Page is a beacon of sanity in increasingly lunatic times; and political commentator Hendrik Hertzberg, whose political writing is as accurate as an arrow twanging to a bull’s-eye. This ninety-minute event will be chaired by founding director of the New Yorker Festival, Rhonda Sherman, who routinely brings together film stars, politicians and just about anyone who has been famous for longer than fifteen minutes. This remarkable event is only happening once, in Auckland, at this Festival. Don’t miss it. (dakvid)
