The cartoons focus on a delightful array of familiar situations and characters, including teachers (from the underappreciated to the overrated), students (from the overachievers to the slackers), and parents (from the demanding to the uninterested). Such New Yorker greats as Charles Barsotti, William Hamilton, Roz Chast, and many others examine education from every perspective with the insightful wit that is the signature of the magazine's cartoons.

Know that for every exuberant 'I love you' from a three-year-old, you're bound to get a, as they say, developmentally appropriate 'I hate you' from a thirteen-year-old. The trick is to embrace the one and let go of the other. . . . Laughter helps." -Cartoonist Barbara Smaller, introduction to the Book of Moms Perfect for Mother's Day, 100 sarcastically pitch-perfect cartoons culled from The New Yorker archives to celebrate Mom's unique motherly mom-ness. More The New Yorker Magazine Book of Mom Cartoons Since 1925, The New Yorker has cultivated the creme de la creme of cartooning elite, a vanguard of sketching artists with astute wit and clever perceptions of life and living. Inside this special collection, such New Yorker cartooning greats as Charles Barsotti, Robert Mankoff, and Barbara Smaller offer up 100 black-and-white single-panel cartoons in tribute to a diverse array of moms, ranging from football and CEO moms to tattooed and jack-in-the-box moms. A witty introduction by New Yorker cartoonist Barbara Smaller opens this homage by calling attention to a few of her favorite cartoons within the collection, including: * Roz Chast's "Bad Mom cards, where Lucy, Gloria, and others are guilty, guilty, guilty of such crimes as not making Play-Doh from scratch or serving orange soda." * Sam Gross's cartoon depicting a "primordial ooze rising out of a test tube . . . inquiring hopefully of the scientist, 'Are you my mommy?'"

Since its earliest days, The New Yorker has been a tastemaker–literally. As the home of A. J. Liebling, Joseph Wechsberg, and M.F.K. Fisher, who practically invented American food writing, the magazine established a tradition that is carried forward today by irrepressible literary gastronomes, including Calvin Trillin, Bill Buford, Adam Gopnik, Jane Kramer, and Anthony Bourdain. Now, in this indispensable collection, The New Yorker dishes up a feast of delicious writing on food and drink, seasoned with a generous dash of cartoons. Whether you’re in the mood for snacking on humor pieces and cartoons or for savoring classic profiles of great chefs and great eaters, these offerings, from every age of The New Yorker’s fabled eighty-year history, are sure to satisfy every taste. There are memoirs, short stories, tell-alls, and poems–ranging in tone from sweet to sour and in subject from soup to nuts. M.F.K. Fisher pays homage to “cookery witches,” those mysterious cooks who possess “an uncanny power over food,” while John McPhee valiantly trails an inveterate forager and is rewarded with stewed persimmons and white-pine-needle tea. There is Roald Dahl’s famous story “Taste,” in which a wine snob’s palate comes in for some unwelcome scrutiny, and Julian Barnes’s ingenious tale of a lifelong gourmand who goes on a very peculiar diet for still more peculiar reasons. Adam Gopnik asks if French cuisine is done for, and Calvin Trillin investigates whether people can actually taste the difference between red wine and white. We journey with Susan Orlean as she distills the essence of Cuba in the story of a single restaurant, and with Judith Thurman as she investigates the arcane practices of Japan’s tofu masters. Closer to home, Joseph Mitchell celebrates the old New York tradition of the beefsteak dinner, and Mark Singer shadows the city’s foremost fisherman-chef. Selected from the magazine’s plentiful larder, Secret Ingredients celebrates all forms of gustatory delight. From the Hardcover edition.

Auf der Longlist für den Deutschen Buchpreis 2014 Alte Fabriken, ärmliche Häuser, aber auch unverhoffte Streifen von Wildnis: eine Landschaft an der Grenze zwischen Stadt und Land, bevölkert von aus ihren Ordnungen gefallenen Menschen, wie sie das wahre Leben am Rande jeder Metropole prägen. In neun Etappen eines Spaziergangs in der Gegend um den River Lea im Osten Londons verfolgt Esther Kinsky die sich überlagernden Spuren ersönlicher Geschichte und urbaner Historie dieser Flusslandschaft und nutzt die Wildnis des Marschlands als Freiraum für Erinnerung und Reflexion. Der River Lea wird zur Grenzmarkierung und zugleich zu einem Wegweiser: Erfahrung und Wahrnehmung finden an ihm eine Schranke und ein Ziel. »Am Fluss« ist ein Buch über das Sehen, über Erkenntnis durch Betrachtung, in dem Esther Kinsky die Frage nach den Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Sichtbarmachung von Welt neu stellt.

Today "The New Yorker" is one of a number of general-interest magazines published for a sophisticated audience, but in the post-World War II era the magazine occupied a truly significant niche of cultural authority. A self-selected community of 250,000 readers, who wanted to know how to look and sound cosmopolitan, found in its pages information about night spots and polo teams. They became conversant with English movies, Italian Communism, French wine, the bombing of the Bikini Atoll, pret-a-porter, and Caribbean vacations. A well-known critic lamented that "certain groups have come to communicate almost exclusively in references to the [magazine's] sacred writings." "The World through a Monocle" is a study of these "sacred writings." Mary Corey mines the magazine's editorial voice, journalism, fiction, advertisements, cartoons, and poetry to unearth the preoccupations, values, and conflicts of its readers, editors, and contributors. She delineates the effort to fuse liberal ideals with aspirations to high social status, finds the magazine's blind spots with regard to women and racial and ethnic stereotyping, and explores its abiding concern with elite consumption coupled with a contempt for mass production and popular advertising. Balancing the consumption of goods with a social conscience which prized goodness, the magazine managed to provide readers with what seemed like a coherent and comprehensive value system in an incoherent world. Viewing the world through a monocle, those who created "The New Yorker" and those who believed in it cultivated a uniquely powerful cultural institution serving an influential segment of the population. Corey's work illuminates this extraordinary enterprise in our social history.

These puzzles - taken from the celebrated pages of The New Yorker magazine - offer more challenges per 'empty square' than the average crossword! Every cryptic has a twist, a little something extra, a double-dose of difficulty. That's because the clues all have two parts: a definition half and a wordplay half, with anagrams, reversals, containers, and lots of other word games built in. For example, here's a clue: 'Reportedly lost in fog. (4 letters).' Got it? It's 'mist' - a homonym for 'missed' and also a synonym for 'fog'. An introduction enlightens you on all the intricacies of solving cryptic crosswords, and of course the solutions appear at the end with tricks behind the clues explained. It may take a little practice to get the hang of these, but once you do, you'll be hooked for good!

From the pages of America’s most influential magazine come eight decades of holiday cheer—plus the occasional comical coal in the stocking—in one incomparable collection. Sublime and ridiculous, sentimental and searing, Christmas at The New Yorker is a gift of great writing and drawing by literary legends and laugh-out-loud cartoonists. Here are seasonal stories, poems, memoirs, and more, including such classics as John Cheever’s 1949 story “Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor,” about an elevator operator in a Park Avenue apartment building who experiences the fickle power of charity; John Updike’s “The Carol Sing,” in which a group of small-town carolers remember an exceptionally enthusiastic fellow singer (“How he would jubilate, how he would God-rest those merry gentlemen, how he would boom out when the male voices became King Wenceslas”); and Richard Ford’s acerbic and elegiac 1998 story “Crèche,” in which an unmarried Hollywood lawyer spends an unsettling holiday with her sister’s estranged husband and kids. Here, too, are S. J. Perelman’s 1936 “Waiting for Santy,” a playlet in the style of Clifford Odets labor drama (the setting: “The sweatshop of Santa Claus, North Pole”), and Vladimir Nabokov’s heartbreaking 1975 story “Christ-mas,” in which a father grieving for his lost son in a world “ghastly with sadness” sees a tiny miracle on Christmas Eve. And it wouldn’t be Christmas—or The New Yorker—without dozens of covers and cartoons by Addams, Arno, Chast, and others, or the mischievous verse of Roger Angell, Calvin Trillin, and Ogden Nash (“Do you know Mrs. Millard Fillmore Revere?/On her calendar, Christmas comes three hundred and sixty-five times a year”). From Jazz Age to New Age, E. B. White to Garrison Keillor, these works represent eighty years of wonderful keepsakes for Christmas, from The New Yorker to you. From the Hardcover edition.

New York City is not only The New Yorker magazine's place of origin and its sensibility's lifeblood, it is the heart of American literary culture. Wonderful Town, an anthology of superb short fiction by many of the magazine's most accomplished contributors, celebrates the seventy-five-year marriage between a preeminent publication and its preeminent context with this collection of forty-four of its best stories from (so to speak) home. East Side? Philip Roth's chronically tormented alter ego Nathan Zuckerman has just moved there, in "Smart Money." West Side? Isaac Bashevis Singer's narrator mingles with the customers in "The Cafeteria" (who debate politics and culture in four or five different languages) and becomes embroiled in an obsessional romance. And downtown, John Updike's Maples have begun their courtship of marital disaster, in "Snowing in Greenwich Village." John Cheever, John O'Hara, Lorrie Moore, Irwin Shaw, Woody Allen, Laurie Colwin, Saul Bellow, J. D. Salinger, Jean Stafford, Vladimir Nabokov--they and many other stellar literary guides to the city will be found in these pages. Wonderful Town touches on some of the city's famous places and stops at some of its more obscure corners, but the real guidebook in and between its lines is to the hearts and the minds of those who populate the metropolis built by its pages. Like all good fiction, these stories take particular places, particular people, and particular events and turn them into dramas of universal enlightenment and emotional impact. The five boroughs are the five continents. New York is every great and ordinary place. Each life in it, and each life in Wonderful Town, is the life of us all. From the Hardcover edition.

Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Deutschland war im Jahr 2006 zum wiederholten Male „Exportweltmeister“, und zwar in Bezug auf industrielle Güter. Gibt es einen solchen Exporterfolg möglicherweise auch auf dem Gebiet der Sprache zu verzeichnen? Wandert deutsches Wortgut in jüngster Zeit wieder verstärkt in das in Amerikanische Englisch aus, nachdem es in der ersten Hälfte des Zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts in den USA mancherorts Bestrebungen gab, alles Deutsche aus der amerikanischen Sprache zu entfernen? In Anbetracht der Flut von Amerikanismen, denen wir im deutschen Sprachraum täglich begegnen, vergessen wir leicht, dass auch die Deutschen Spuren in der amerikanischen Sprache hinterlassen haben. Diese Spuren sind vielfach untersucht worden. Sie könnten sich sowohl in der Grammatik als auch im Wortschatz finden lassen. So gab es Behauptungen, nach denen man einen deutschen Einfluss im AE beispielsweise auch in der Syntax feststellen kann. In der vorliegenden Arbeit geht es jedoch allein um Lehnwörter oder Lehnübersetzungen aus dem Deutschen, die in den amerikanischen Wortschatz aufgenommen wurden. Es ist festgestellt worden, dass sich besonders dort, wo sich deutsche Siedler in Nordamerika niedergelassen haben, vor allem solche Wörter niedergeschlagen haben, die für typisch Deutsches (Deutschtum) stehen. Solches Lehngut wurde vor allem in den Bereichen des Essens und Trinkens, sowie der Lebensart, aber auch im Bereich des Handwerks oder der Landwirtschaft gefunden. Als bedeutenste Quellen für deutsches Wortgut in Amerika gelten große deutsche Siedlungen, an erster Stelle Pennsylvania, wo sich das Pennsylvaniadeutsch entwickelte. Doch auch in New York haben die Deutschen mit ihrer Sprache, seit sie ab etwa 1709 begannen, sich im Hudson Valley niederzulassen, solche Spuren hinterlassen. Allerdings sind solche Spuren der deutschen Sprache, zum Beispiel im Vergleich zu denen aus dem Französischen, aus der Zeit der frühen Einwanderer nur noch wenig vorhanden. Deutsche Wörter hielten dann wieder vermehrt in der Zeit der großen Einwandererwelle zwischen 1840 und 1880, und zwischen 1933 und 1945 Einzug in die Sprache Nordamerikas und New Yorks. Und auch heute findet der ein oder andere deutsche Ausdruck seinen Weg ins AE. Auch viele jiddische Begriffe gingen im Laufe der Zeit in den allgemeinen New Yorker Sprachgebrauch, und von dort auch in den amerikanischen Wortschatz über. Auf jiddische Elemente trifft man besonders in Film und Fernsehen (als Beispiel seien [...]

In 1928, just after he published his first novel Strange Fugitive in New York, Morley Callaghan wrote to his editor, Maxwell Perkins: "Here is something I thought you might be able to tell me about. Do you think The New Yorkerwould be a good magazine for my stories? They have never printed fiction before, but are going to start with that story of mine called "An Escapade." Perkins replied: "As for The New YorkerI think it has a very excellent type of circulation from your standpoint and ours..."Through the thirties, through the Depression, Callaghan did an astonishing thing: he kept himself and his family alive by writing short stories that Hemingway compared to Joyce, fiction that brought praise from Wyndham Lewis and Edmund Wilson and led the New York Timesto say, "If there is a better story writer in the world we don’t know where he is."
