Atlantic Magazine: Food For Thought

Airplane miles I couldn’t use were commandeered by my husband to order magazines by the postal carrier truckload. Suddenly my mail box was filled with issues of People, This Old House, Time, Food and Wine, Traveler, In Style and more.

To my surprise, The Atlantic Magazine has been my hands-down favorite. I remember it as The Atlantic Monthly and being rather dry, but this bi-monthly current incarnation is thought-provoking with articles  on politics, religion, technology, the arts, social phenomena and important ideas, in general. In fact, the issue now on the newsstands is “The Ideas Issue.” Adding a literary touch, poems are scattered throughout the pages; even the book ads are sophisticated and intellectually stimulating. This is a news magazine, rather than a cultural reader, but the writing is every bit as good as The New Yorker magazine.

To whet your appetite for the July/August issue, learn “Why the Saudis Are Going Solar,”  ask yourself “Is Silicon Valley Really Evil?” or the cover article, “The End of Work.” Much food for thought, indeed.
