Peter Arno: The Mad, Mad World of the New Yorker's Greatest Cartoonist (Hardcover) - SIGNED BY MICHAEL MASLIN
...
Maslin invites us inside the Roaring Twenties cultural swirl known as Cafe Society, in which Arno was an insider and observant outsider, both fascinated and repulsed by America's swelling concept of celebrity.
...
Through a nuanced constellation ofArno's most defining experiences and escapades that inspired his work in the pages of "The New Yorker," Maslin explores the formative years of the publication and its iconic cartoon tradition. In tandem, he traces the shifting gradations ofArno's brushstrokes and characters over the decades all in light of the cultural upheavals that informedArno's sardonic humor.

That's what prompted Michael Maslin, himself a New Yorker cartoonist, to write a new biography, "Peter Arno: The Mad, Mad World of The New Yorker's Greatest Cartoonist" (Regan Arts, New York, 287 pages).

...
"It occurred to me that he hadn't been given his due," says Maslin, originally from Bloomfield, who made his first contribution to The New Yorker in 1977 (his wife, Liza Donnelly, is also a New Yorker cartoonist). He'll be on hand to sign copies of his book at Books & Greetings on Thursday.
"His art really raised the bar exceptionally high," Maslin says.
...
"When you look at any old New Yorker, and you come to an Arno - especially if it's a full page - you stop," Maslin says.
...
"I had never heard of a cartoonist in trouble with the law before," Maslin says.
...
"The circulation kept going down and down and down, and when [Arno] arrived at the magazine, they had planned to kill it," Maslin says.
...
"They were dated and not very funny," Maslin says.
...
"Arno said the key to a successful New Yorker cartoon was the interdependence of drawing and caption," Maslin says.
...
But Maslin, whose own witty cartoons probably owe more to the Thurber influence, knows enough about The New Yorker culture not to hold this against him. Especially since the Arno cartoons - however they came about - are so often so good.
"I've been doing this a long time, and I think I can understand the way of life and the way things work at the magazine," he says.
