The New Yorker

Total Issues: 3750 (to Feb-1999)

A very successful combination of humour magazine (the approximate American equivalent of Punch), local listings paper, and literary journal with an emphasis on fiction. It is probably the most sophisticated, urbane, clique-fiction magazine of them all, although under Conde Nast's (S. I. Newhouse's) ownership and Tina Brown's editorship it has lost money. Authors include E. B. White, James Thurber, John O'Hara, S. J. Perelman, John Collier, Roald Dahl, Shirley Jackson, Sylvia Townsend Warner, J. D. Salinger, Robert M. Coates, Sally Benson, John Cheever, John Updike, Donald Barthelme, William Trevor, Mavis Gallant, Ursula Le Guin, Salman Rushdie, Margaret Atwood, Stephen King. no single index, but almost as good is The Complete Book of Covers from the New Yorker 1925-1989 (Knopf, 1989). See also About Town: The New Yorker and the World It Made by Ben Yagoda (Scribner, 2000).
