Thomas Vinciguerra: Cast of Characters

As a vivid reader of The New Yorker, I thoroughly enjoyed Vinciguerra’s behind-the-scene stories of the brilliant minds—including the witty theater critic Wolcott Gibbs, the peculiar founding editor Harold Ross, the lustrous cartoonist James Thurber, and the wizard of prose E.B. White—that shaped one of the most influential publications in the world. Vinciguerra’s writing is scrupulous, fair, and entertaining. If you love The New Yorker, you’ll enjoy Cast of Characters as well.
