Lee’s (Garrison Keillor: A Voice of America) detailed and scholarly work covers the first five years of The New Yorker magazine (1925-30). She argues that The New Yorker’s early style of humor featured the joining of the visual with the written, the use of modernistic techniques, and treating different types of New Yorkers as if they were residents of a small town. Lee examines comic verse, dialect stories, layout, covers, illustrations, style, and the organization of the magazine, as well as the work of the great names behind New Yorker humor – the Whites, Thurber, Arno, Irvin, Barton, Parker, and Hokinson. Throughout, she places The New Yorker’s early years in the tradition of American humor and the sociology of the 1920s and treats the business aspects of the publication. And thankfully, at last, she explains an array of difficult cartoons for those of us who don’t get it. A fine view of the early 1920s; recommended for literature and popular culture collections.
