Does the BB staff really not grasp that this new format is hostile to readers?
From the main page, there's a brief description and a link to the original story on nybooks.com. Clicking the link to the story does NOT in fact take the user to the story. Instead, clicking the link (or anything in the vicinity of the link) takes the user to this discussion page, where surprise there's NO LINK! At least, not until the user clicks "show full post", and then the link to the story finally appears.
So I have to click three times to see the damn story because BB (for reasons known only to the staff, who are a bit reader hostile themselves) want us to see the discussion page first, and then have to hunt for the hidden link.
