Books Description :
From Publishers Weekly With equal parts nostalgia and snarkiness, this history /anthology celebrates the now legendary satirical magazine during its heyday—aka 1986 to 1991, when founders and partners Andersen (Turn of the Century and host of [PRI's] Studio 360) and Carter (editor of Vanity Fair) ran the show (the magazine folded as a monthly in 1994). 'We were very lucky to catch two waves—the post-'60s ironic mood and the go-go financial mood,' observes Andersen, and these pages offer plenty of opportunity to travel back to those heady days of 'Separated at Birth?' and 'The Spy Guide to Postmodern Everything.' Those who wondered what life at Spy was really like will also be rewarded: former deputy editor Kalogerakis [...] has collected plenty of stories about minuscule paychecks, ridiculously tight budgets and bacchanalian parties (Andersen and Carter chime in with extensive annotations). Certain to be on the holiday wish lists of aging hipsters. (Nov.) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
