Ariel Levy: The Rules Do Not Apply

Ariel Levy, author of the memoir “The Rules Do Not Apply” in conversation with Richard Wolinsky.

A staff writer for the New Yorker magazine since 2008, Ariel Levy¬†first began her tenure focusing on issues involving sexuality and gender. She’s since expanded her reach, with stories about Silvio Berlusconi, Mike Huckabee, the hip drug ayuhuaska and the photographer Catherine Opie.

While on assignment in Mongolia, she developed a miscarriage and, within two weeks, saw her relationship go south. Her memoir talks about both events, her career in journalism, and coping with loss.
