The New Yorker

The New Yorker is the name of the long running and widely respected magazine (debuted on February 21, 1925), well known for its success at popularizing the short story as a literary form in English in the mid-20th century. The magazine also is known for its journalism -- John Hersey's Hiroshima filled an entire issue -- and for its criticism and essays, particularly the short "Talk of the Town" pieces. Some readers look only for the cartoons and short humorous pieces.
