I don’t think your article sounds like a New Yorker piece – although I don’t know what that is

You can say something of substance in a paper or a magazine, but radio and television interviews do little more than cater to the vanity of the writer

The New Yorker has a longstanding tradition of squalor with which I am loath to interfere

I just made it more yours

You should simply write it to its natural length – whatever that is

I’ll be happy if twelve people in the country read it.… I want any piece to be read by its natural readers – people who will understand and enjoy it
