North Carolina-born Joseph Mitchell, literary lion of THE NEW YORKER magazine, is the subject of an elegant, ambitious, and articulate portrait. Journalist Kunkel explores Mitchell’s enigmatic and odd nature along with his interest in colorful New Yorkers. Narrator Joe Barrett’s gravelly, expressive voice, which employs subtle characterization, is perfectly matched to the precise and confident prose. This is a thoughtful and sympathetic investigation of a life, seamlessly interweaving Mitchell’s youthful, middle, and later years, examining the long periods in which he did not write, only to return to those efforts later with great success.
