Conversations with Elie Wiesel by Elie Wiesel( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 782 libraries worldwide
"Conversations with Elie Wiesel is a far-ranging dialogue with the Nobel Peace Prize-winner on the major issues of our time and on life's timeless questions." "In open and lively responses to the probing questions and provocative comments of Richard D. Heffner - American historian, noted public television moderator/producer, and Rutgers University professor - Elie Wiesel covers fascinating and often perilous political and spiritual ground, expounding on issues global and local, individual and universal, often drawing anecdottaly on his own life experience." "We hear from Wiesel on subjects that include the moral responsibility of both individuals and governments; the role of the state in our lives; the anatomy of hate; the threat of technology; religion, politics, and tolerance; nationalism; capital punishment, compassion, and mercy; and the essential role of historical memory." "These conversations present a valuable and thought-provoking distillation of the thinking of one of the world's most important and respected figures - a man who has become a moral beacon for our time."--Jacket

"From its birth in 1925 to the early days of the Cold War, The New Yorker slowly but surely took hold as the country's most prestigious, entertaining, and informative general-interest periodical. In [this book], Thomas Vinciguerra paints a portrait of the magazine's cadre of charming, wisecracking, driven, troubled, brilliant writers and editors"--Dust jacket flap

Cast of characters : Wolcott Gibbs, E. B. White, James Thurber, and the golden age of the New Yorker by Thomas J Vinciguerra( Sound Recording )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
At the heart of the narrative is the largely forgotten life of Wolcott Gibbs, the magazine₂s theater critic and all-around wit, author of an infamous 1936 parody of Time magazine. Around him swirled a legendary roster of writers, editors, and illustrators, including E. B. and Katharine White, James Thurber, Charles Addams, Peter Arno, and John O₂Hara. Their stories are told here, along with those of equally colorful but overlooked figures like managing editor St. Clair McKelway, head fact-checker Frederick Packard, and the flamboyant film reviewer John Chapin Mosher
