How does a swing state go extreme? The staff writer Jane Mayer took a deep dive into Ohio statehouse politics. She talked with the politician David Pepper, who wrote “Laboratories of Autocracy,” about how an extreme gerrymander of Ohio’s electoral districts has put its democracy “on life support.” The gerrymander “changed the whole course of history there,” Mayer notes. Plus, Alex Kotlowitz, known as a chronicler of urban life in Chicago, brought a recorder on his annual canoe trip to the remote wilderness of the Boundary Waters. And Susan Orlean remembers Ivana Trump, who died last month, at the age of seventy-three.
