The New Yorker Wins Four National Magazine Awards

On Thursday night, The New Yorker won four National Magazine Awards—known as the Ellies—in the categories of Essays and Criticism, Feature Writing, Columns and Commentary, and Fiction. Here are the winners:

Ariel Levy won the prize for Essays and Criticism for “Thanksgiving in Mongolia,” a personal history of a trip that brought adventure and heartbreak:

My doctor told me that it was fine to fly up until the third trimester, so when I was five months pregnant I decided to take one last big trip. It would be at least a year, maybe two, before I’d be able to leave home for weeks on end and feel the elation of a new place revealing itself. (It’s like having a new lover—even the parts you aren’t crazy about have the crackling fascination of the unfamiliar.) Just before Thanksgiving, I went to Mongolia.
