Books of Interest

 _______________________________________________________________________________

Following in the footsteps of The 40s: The Story of a Decade comes The 50s: The Story of a Decade (Both edited by Henry Finder, both published by Random House). No cover image available. The book will be out in September.   If the 50s is anything like the 40s, we can expect classic New Yorker fiction, nonfiction and assessments of the decade by contemporary New Yorker contributors.  Can’t wait for the other collections in what now appears to be a series, especially the The 20s and 30s.
