A couple of years ago, my agent told me to forget about trying to write for the New Yorker. She said it's too clicky. You have to be a real insider to get a break with them. And besides, once you get in, they're a pain to work with.
So I stopped reading it. Sort of took the fun out of it.
But this week I'm going to have to buy a copy. They've got a long article about Ryan Hall.
