Summer in the city

Hosted by

F. Murray Abraham reads Arthur Miller’s essay “Before Air-Conditioning,” in which Miller recalls the sweltering New York summers of his youth. The New Yorker staff writer Jiayang Fan chats with the novelist Janice Y. K. Lee about class in Hong Kong; comic-book writer Marjorie Liu discusses the need for more comic-book heroines; and two short-story writers go fly-fishing.
