The New Yorker
A Cosmopolitan World
The New Yorker was launched in 1925, and offers reporting, criticism, essays, fiction, poetry, humour,
and cartoons. At the start, the founding editor Harold Ross declared that the sophisticated magazine was
not edited for the old lady in Dubuque'.
The New Yorker has published work from such acclaimed writers as John Cheever, Roald Dahl, Alice Munro, Haruki Murakami, Vladimir Nabokov, J. D. Salinger, and Shirley Jackson.
From the very first issue, featuring the now iconic monocled dandy Eustace Tilley, The New Yorker'scovers have been unique and pointed. The striking and sometimes controversial images from such artists as Peter Arno, William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Jean-Jacques Sempé, and Art Spiegelman remain as resonant as ever.
