Joe Biden’s presidency began with extraordinary ambitions to not only restore normality, but also to reshape American life. Evan Osnos takes stock of his administration’s current successes, failures and challenges with four New Yorker colleagues: Susan B. Glasser on legislation, Jonathan Blitzer on immigration, Elizabeth Kolbert on climate action and John Cassidy on economics. Plus, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Hilton Als and novelist Emma Cline explain why the influence of the late Joan Didion remains so pervasive on generations of young writers.
