Ben Yagoda (au). The New Yorker magazine is arguable Americaís most revered cultural institution. The best work of virtually every prose giant of the century first appeared in its pages. For more than 7 decades, it has been the embodiment of urban sophistication. This book tells the fascinating story of how a tiny humor magazine, founded in the Jazz Age on champagne vapors, grew into a literary enterprise of epic proportion. Yagoda made extensive use of the New Yorkerís archives -- 3,000 boxes of correspondence & interoffice memos. Includes interviews with more than 50 people, including the late Joseph Mitchell, William Steig, Roger Angell, Calvin Trillin, Pauline Kael, John Updike, & Ann Beattie.
