Steve Jobs -- the race for the ultimate article. The first candidates, there will be more.
First out of the gate was Time, arriving via special delivery on Saturday. People also came out early, coming in on Tuesday, instead of the usual Friday, confusing everyone. Impressively, import magazine from Germany, Der Spiegel flew over to join the pack of early arrivals. If only I could read German! The New Yorker has several articles, but its cover (coyly hiding behind the yellow overleaf) has stirred up a lot of controversy.
And you might miss it behind all the Steve Jobs hoopla, but the New Yorker does have an article on the Norton Juster's Phantom Tollbooth -- 50th anniversary! The Magus Bookstore may have Dick and Jane in Yiddish in the window, but where is the Phantom Tollbooth?
