The New Yorker's blend of reporting, commentary, criticism, fiction, and cartoons has garnered 36 National Magazine Awards since its debut in 1925 - more than any other publication. Edited by Pulitzer Prize winner David Remnick, the magazine has had only five editors in its 80-year history. Each week, Audible and the editorial staff of The New Yorker work together to select a variety of the issue's best articles from The Talk of the Town, Fiction, The Critics, and more. Each article is read in its entirety. The New Yorker is available in audio exclusively at audible.com.

Drinking felt like freedom, part of her birthright as a strong, enlightened 21st-century woman.
