From Thomas Kunkel, who authored one of the very best New Yorker biographies, Genius in Disguise: Harold Ross of The New Yorker (Random House, 1995), comes Man in Profile: Joseph Mitchell of The New Yorker. Due April 21, 2015, from Random House. No cover image & scant few details as of now.
And in February of 2015, Writing For The New Yorker: Critical Essays on an American Periodical by Fiona Green (Edinburgh University Press). Here’s what the publisher has to say:
Original critical essays on an iconic American periodical, providing new insights into twentieth-century literary culture
This collection of newly commissioned critical essays reads across and between New Yorker departments, from sports writing to short stories, cartoons to reporters at large, poetry to annals of business. Attending to the relations between these kinds of writing and the magazine’s visual and material constituents, the collection examines the distinctive ways in which imaginative writing has inhabited the ‘prime real estate’ of this enormously influential periodical. In bringing together a range of sharply angled analyses of particular authors, styles, columns, and pages, this book offers multiple perspectives on American writing and periodical culture at specific moments in twentieth-century history.
