The 1940s are the watershed decade of the twentieth century, a time of trauma and upheaval but also of innovation and profound and lasting cultural change. This is the era of Fat Man and Little Boy, of FDR and Stalin, but also of Casablanca and Citizen Kane, zoot suits and Christian Dior, Duke Ellington and Edith Piaf. The 1940s were when The New Yorker came of age. A magazine that was best known for its humor and wry social observation would extend itself, offering the first in depth reporting from Hiroshima and introducing American readers to the fiction of Vladimir Nabokov and the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop. In this enthralling book, masterly contributions from the pantheon of great writers who graced The New Yorker's pages throughout the decade are placed in history by the magazine's current writers. Included in this volume are seminal profiles of the decade's most fascinating figures, as well as vital, seldom reprinted criticism. Perhaps no contribution the magazine made to 1940s American culture was more lasting than its fiction and poetry. Included here is an extraordinary selection of short stories by such writers as Shirley Jackson (whose masterpiece "The Lottery" stirred outrage when it appeared in the magazine in 1948) and John Cheever (of whose now classic story "The Enormous Radio" New Yorker editor Harold Ross said: "It will turn out to be a memorable one, or I am a fish.") Also represented are the great poets of the decade, from Louise Bogan and William Carlos Williams to Theodore Roethke and Langston Hughes.… (mere)

A compilation of essays, reviews, fiction and poetry from The New Yorker in the 1940’s
There are some real gems here: John Hershey’s Hiroshima and Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” just to name two. The reader gets a real flavor of the country just before, during and just after World War II. ( )

I LOVED this. It's amazing how familiar the New Yorker "voice" is after 70 years.

Highlights:
-John Hersey's [b:Hiroshima|27323|Hiroshima|John Hersey|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327719015s/27323.jpg|1014091]. I loved [b:A Bell for Adano|415412|A Bell for Adano|John Hersey|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1403185397s/415412.jpg|1798417], and this just cements him for me.
-John Hersey's profile of JFK. Ditto.
-George Orwell's review (of something I can't even remember now). Everything he was saying is still so relevant. I should read more of him.
-All of the WWII coverage, especially of the D-Day landings.

I'm bad and I skipped the poetry section, because poetry. ( )

A fantastic compilation of essays, stories and articles from the New Yorker pages of the 1940's. The writings run the gamut from observations of war time Paris, to essays on films, music and art, and short stories written by some of the greatest authors of the day.
It's a book that encourages dipping in and out, and skipping around, rather than reading without deviation from beginning to end.
It's a marvelous book that immerses the reader into the 1940's. Loved it! ( )

Finally, I read The 40s: The Story of a Decade which has made me want to subscribe to The New Yorker so it definitely did its job. It's a collection of pieces from that illustrious publication during the 1940s when it underwent the change from witty, humorist magazine to political, correspondence magazine. From profiles to poetry to politics, The New Yorker broke down barriers and contributed some truly revolutionary writings that left an indelible mark on the history of journalism. I was especially moved by the essay on Hiroshima which focused on a handful of survivors of the atomic bomb. The entire collection was fascinating for its time capsule like quality but it was also a fine sampling of excellent writing. I'd also like to point out that I heard about this book on the New York Public Library's homepage on a blog post entitled "The Blacklist: What is Red Reading?". Turns out James Spader is currently reading this book and it sounded so intriguing that I decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad that I did! ( )

As an avid reader of the New Yorker magazine, I looked forward to reading this collection of pieces from the 1940’s and I was not disappointed. It begins with a fascinating introduction by David Remnick which describes the beginnings of the magazine and how its intent evolved during the years of World War II. The pieces begin with the German invasion of Paris and continue throughout the war and beyond. There is one particularly spectacular piece about John F. Kennedy’s war experience. It is a large book and I have approximately one third left to read, but I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in well written prose. I am currently reading this as an egalley but would recommend a hard copy as it would be a nice book to flip through. I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
