Help me find this story...

A few years ago there was a short story in the New Yorker set in the near future. The characters were children raised in a world where they seemed to be market research test subjects... I really can't recall any more details than that... Does this ring any bells?

I don't understand Hungarian but I need to do research for my novel!

(Posting for a Friend) "I am doing research for a novel I'm writing. But since I'm no longer affiliated with a university I'm having a difficult time in getting responses from professors and specialists that I have contacted with questions. How can I increase my chances of having them take me seriously and answer my questions? Also, does anyone have advice for a non-Hungarian speaker to do research with the Hungarian Archives?" Thank you!

How can I be more myself writing online? I’m a quiet person, but I do have a good sense of humor and I’m quick-witted. I can be a good conversationalist.

How does Paul Theroux write the way he does?

I like the prose style of Paul Theroux's travel writing. How's he do it? It seems very distinctive, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Anyone have any nuts-and-bolts insights into how he achieves those effects, both in terms of his prose mechanics and his "voice"?

Where should I travel to if I don't want to sightsee?

I really want to get away from my house to finish up some screenplays for a May 1 deadline. So where can a not-so-rich person go for the last two weeks of April that will allow much peace and quiet while being both safe and warm enough to wander around in short sleeves night and day. Suppose a cost of around $1500--the cheaper the better--including return airfare to Toronto. Note that I like seclusion but I also don't drive so it needs to be someplace close to the necessities.
