Product Details

Praise

“Think of it as one of Alice’s Wonderland potions, to be sipped from occasionally when one is in need of a dose of the extraordinary.”The Economist
 
The 40s is an extraordinary anthology of journalism from a tumultuous era. . . . What a glittering roster scribbled for the magazine back then. . . . This anthology is such a mother lode of ‘great material,’ it’s hard to know where to begin.”The Star

“An absolutely breathtaking assemblage of some of America’s finest and most lasting writing . . . This is magnificent stuff, a cornucopia of truly distinguished literature, a near-perfect gift to give and an entirely ideal one to receive.”Booklist (starred review)

“A book to be read, reread and savored . . . an absolute treat . . . This is the soul of The New Yorker.”Kirkus Reviews
