Product description

Profiles from The New Yorker
One of art's purest challenges is to translate a human being into words. The New Yorker magazine has met this challenge more often and more successfully - and more originally and more surprisingly - than any other modern American journal.

Starting with its light fantastic evocations of the glamorous and the idiosyncratic in the twenties and continuing to the present, with complex pictures of such contempories as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Richard Pryor, The New Yorker's Profiles have represented readers with a vast and brilliant portrait gallery of our day and age.

To help mark the occasion of The New Yorker's seventy-fifth anniversary, Life Stories puts into one volume, for the first time, some of the most outstanding examples of this exemplary tradition.
