Edward Sorel in The New York Times Book Review
I should’ve mentioned this a while back, but better late than…well you know. Our grand master of caricature, Edward Sorel has been working on a series of back pages for The New York Times Book Review. His latest: “The Rise and Fall of Truman Capote” appears this week.
Mr. Sorel has been contributing to The New Yorker since 1990.

More Mischa on Attempted Bloggery
Stephen Nadler continues his Mischa Richter fest on Attempted Bloggery. Mr. Richter is a member the Spill’s K Club (the club’s 23 member have sold a thousand or more cartoons to The New Yorker). Mr. Richter’s New Yorker career spanned sixty-one years (I believe the cartoonist record-holder is William Steig at seventy-three years).
Slightly Underwritten, published in 1951 by Simon & Schuster was one of my most memorable used bookstore finds. Memorable because the original of the Thurber drawing on the cover happens to be the one and only Thurber original in the Spill‘s collection. When I pulled this book off the store shelf and saw the drawing on the cover, time stood still for just a moment. The drawing is the only Thurber in this slim collection; it’s joined by other four other New Yorker cartoons, with the rest from a wide variety of publications. New Yorker artists include Gardner Rea, Gluyas Williams, Syd Hoff, Robert Day, Richard Decker, and Chon Day.
From the inside flap:
“Here we have a collection of cartoons to gladden the hearts of both the men who sell insurance and the people who try vainly to resist them.”
And from the The Foreword :
“Almost all good things come to an end…Food will spoil. But insurance goes on forever.”
Panel of Interest: “I Was Only Kidding!”
Two New Yorker contributors, Ben Katchor and Liana Finck are part of the panel. All the info is right there on the above screen grab, but here’s another version.
