Summary Top Hat and Tales chronicles the early years of The New Yorker, from its fledgling beginnings under its legendary creator and editor Harold Ross, to its rise as an indispensable American institution. Interviews with celebrated writers and cartoonists such as John Updike, David Remnick, Roger Angell, Lee Lorenz, and Roz Chast will inform how The New Yorker's signature style and content was shaped by its early contributors, including E.B. White, James Thurber, Charles Addams, Janet Flanner, J.D. Salinger, and more. Film clips, home movies and images from the anthology of The New Yorker covers and cartoons illustrate this look at one of journalism's most revered publications. Commentary by Charles Schulz, Stuart Hample and Roy Blount, Jr. offers insight into The New Yorker's role in the nation's cultural history.
