    Life Stories PDF/EPUB ¼ Paperback life mobile, stories kindle, Life Stories ePUBSo I haven't actually read this whole book just several of the essays but I have been spending a lot of my time lately with my nose in the New Yorker archives My print subscription ran out a few months ago but for some reason my digital subscription and archive access hasn't changed The biggest problem with the New Yorker archives is that unless you know what you're looking for it's hard to run across anything interesting What they need is a digital archivist like Sports Illustrated has who can recall important or timely articles and feature them on the archives homepage They dabble a little with that now but it could be so much better So anyways I've just been typing New Yorker into which brings up dozens of anthologies of New Yorker articles arranged by subject Then I click on the subject I want to read about like Sports or Profiles and click Table of Contents I pick the article I want and then search for it in the New Yorker archives The New Yorker archive really should be consi

    Life Stories PDF/EPUB ¼ Paperback life mobile, stories kindle, Life Stories ePUBRe reading this collection ten years later it strikes me that a lot of these profiles haven't aged very well especially ones written by male writers on female subjects The one exception the profile that most endures to me at least is Janet Malcolm's 41 False Starts which is a masterpiece of form echoing content


  4. Matthew Matthew says:

    Life Stories PDF/EPUB ¼ Paperback life mobile, stories kindle, Life Stories ePUBThis was amazing the best collection of essays I've read since well the best American essays of the century collection Coming from the New Yorker this collection has of a formula there is a certain style that runs throughout despite the variation in subject and I suppose a certain similarity of perspective that of an uptown Eastern elite looking with somewhat clinical interest down on the specimen Nonetheless these are wonderfully entertaining and also terribly educational for a non American reader My two particular favorites were the long profiles of Johnny Carson and Roseanne; both are so instructive on what seems to be a very American phenomenon the talk show; both also hosted very different programs The most endearing though is the one about Carol Ruckdeschel an otherwise undistinguished young biologist who was living off the land and roadkill in Georgia; just beautifully written and a fascinating and attractive lifestyle T

    Life Stories PDF/EPUB ¼ Paperback life mobile, stories kindle, Life Stories ePUBThis is a big fat book of over 600 pages But the uality of the writing and variety of the subject matter keeps it fresh I especially loved checking out the different approaches the writers take to reveal their subjects some conventional and some much less so Mr Hunter's Grave the first story is the master of the form It's so uiet and unassuming with such beautiful prose The Education of a Prince wins for pure reading enjoyment Dealing with Roseanne is funny and bold and is the best psychological investigation of any person in the book though the Carson profile Fifteen Years of the Salto Mortale comes close though it's a better portrait of an industry I wanted to hate Forty One False Starts a portrait of David Salle for its obvious anti memoir structure and obvious correlation with the artist's type of work but you end up acknowledging it's the only way to tackle such an overexposed character And finally Delta Nights Lucinda Williams is a great way to end the book

    Life Stories PDF/EPUB ¼ Paperback life mobile, stories kindle, Life Stories ePUBI did not read this whole book BUT there are two profiles in it that are utterly brilliant and unforgettable The most amazing one is on Ricky Jay the magician scholar and unclassifiable entertainer I recall reading it in the New Yorker years ago and being blown away by it Jay is probably a true genius and might possibly be able to do real magic if the stories told here about him are true You have to read it to believe it Plus the article serves as a sort of introduction into the world of serious adult magicyes I just wrote that The schools of thought rivalries egos attempts to keep andor trade secretsit boggles the mind Finally worth the price of the book is the description of Jay's forced interaction with his magiciandoggleganger The other wonderful profile is on Hemingway and it's a chilling portrait of Papa near the endMy wife read the one on two mathematicians who work with 'pi' and she loved it even copied it for her high
