An Editor’s Burial: Journals and Journalism From The New Yorker and other Magazines, coming our way in July from Penguin/Random House.

 

This from the publisher:

A glimpse of post-war France through the eyes and words of 14 (mostly) expatriate journalists including Mavis Gallant, James Baldwin, A.J. Liebling, S.N. Behrman, Luc Sante, Joseph Mitchell, and Lillian Ross; plus, portraits of their editors William Shawn and New Yorker founder Harold Ross.

Together: they invented modern magazine journalism. Includes an introductory interview by Susan Morrison with Anderson about transforming fact into a fiction and the creation of his homage to these exceptional reporters.

 

I’m guessing the piece on Harold Ross by S.N. Behrman is “Harold Ross: A Recollection”  from Mr. Behrman’s The Suspended Drawing Room (Stein & Day, 1965). It’s good reading.

 

The Lillian Ross material possibly (likely!?) from her oddly unconvincing memoir of Shawn, Here But Not Here (Random House, 1998).
