A New York Review Books OriginalAn uncompromising contrarian, a passionate polemicist, a man of quick wit and wide learning, an anarchist, a pacifist, and a virtuoso of the slashing phrase, Dwight Macdonald was an indefatigable and indomitable critic of America's susceptibility to well-meaning cultural fakery: all those estimable, eminent, prizewinning works of art that are said to be good and good for you and are not. He dubbed this phenomenon "Midcult" and he attacked it not only on aesthetic but on political grounds. Midcult rendered people complacent and compliant, secure in their common stupidity but neither happy nor free.This new selection of Macdonald's finest essays, assembled by John Summers, the editor of The Baffler, reintroduces a remarkable American critic and writer. In the era of smart, sexy, and everything indie, Macdonald remains as pertinent and challenging as ever.

Master Cornhill is a 200 page novel first published in 1973 and written by the acclaimed writer for children and adults Eloise Jarvis McGraw, author of The Newbery Honor novel The Moorchild. The summary by Atheneum reads as follows: Before the Great Plague swept London in 1665, eleven-year-old foundling Michael Cornhill had led a sheltered, happy life with his foster family and seldom wondered about the parents he had never known. Sent hastily from the city when his foster mother succumbed to the dread plague, Michael survived; but eight months later when he returned, all his family and friends had perished. Homeless and penniless, he brooded now about his unknown origins and worried about his future. Two new friends made life possible for him-Tom Godfrey, a carefree young man who sang ballads on street corners for a living, and Susanna, a sturdily independent girl who kept house for an old Dutch map-maker. Though Michael liked helping Tom sell ballads, he knew-and Susanna often reminded him-that this was not really the way to spend the rest of his life. Then another disaster struck the ancient city. A fierce conflagration, known to history as the Great Fire of London, swept everything before it in a gigantic holocaust. How Michael and Tom struggled through it, attempting to reach Susanna and the old map-maker, and how Michael found the direction his life should eventually take, make up the concluding section of this absorbing story, brimming with authentic detail and swift in its dramatic conclusion. For its fascinating portrait of England in a time of crisis no less than for its powerful narrative and compelling story of friendship and courage, this is a book of lasting value.
