Rare Mary McCarthy, George Balanchine, David Rieff, Paul Wilkes, and New Yorker Magazine collectible item. Landmark New Yorker Magazine Issue. June 7, 1993 Issue. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Contributions by some of the world's finest writers, journalists, poets, humorists, and graphic/cartoon artists. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Unlike most books being published today, American magazines are still being printed in America; many of them are not only superior in quality, they will last in terms of production values. Without DJ, as issued. One of the most important Issues ever published by the magazine, the Main Features include a posthumous piece on Mary McCarthy and her best novel, "The Group"; a full-length memorial tribute to Balanchine by Arlene Croce (with accompanying photographs by Richard Avedon), one of the single best pieces on ballet ever written; the investigative jounalistic piece, "Unholy Acts", one of the earliest, most thorough, and most riveting "must-reading" pieces on the Roman Catholic Church's still-ongoing pedophilia scandal; and "Swordfish", one of the best pieces on the drug trade and its Miami connection, by David Rieff. A "must-have" title for Mary McCarthy, George Balanchine, ballet, and photography collectors. This Issue is no longer available from the publisher, bookstores or online and is now collectible. This is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare copy thus. Some of the world's finest living writers and artists. A fine copy.
