The New Yorker Talks

As you might have read, FishbowlNY loves end-of-the-year lists, and this morning we’ve got a good one to share with you: The New Yorker has gathered the best of its Talk of The Town section, complete with excerpts and links (some require a subscription to view) to each piece.

It’s truly a list that has something for everyone, with articles on the rebirth of Pee-Wee, a high-end clothing store for short people, and Christopher Hitchens hanging out with Salman Rushdie. Oh and of course, what would a New York-centric collection of writing be without a piece on James Franco? Less annoying? Well, yeah.
