If it was The bandbox book sharp struggle, it was a short one that prefaced his decision. Yet despite the formidable research that clearly went into it, the novel never strays from being a light and breezy entertainment, a tribute to Mallon's considerable storytelling skills. He'd pried away three of his old writers, a photographer, and two production assistants, and had even made a run at Mrs. To quote the closing sentence: "What do we do for an encore? Only one problem One of his top editors has deserted him, moved several floors up in the Graybar Building, and started a rival magazine, Cutaway, which is starting to bleed him dry.

But the real prize for Jimmy was Harriss readers and advertisers, whom he would surely keep wooing The bandbox book if he managed, with stunts like this Leopold and Loeb picture, to undo the makeover of Bandbox. So influenced, the strongest men are prone to folly. They're gangsters, Irish. The narrative centers on the cutthroat competition between the two magazines, a suspenseful battle in which two Bandbox editors secretly defect to the other magazine, providing inside information that allows Jimmy to scoop his old boss and win the ratings game. Hazel ignored him. Every character is so quirky and genuine, every situation unique and hilarious that at the end of the tale, any reader will only want more.

Mallon who is extremely competent at capturing the precise details of a time and place shows this skill again with Bandbox. Prohibition, police corruption, a court trial, in-house intrigue, the narcotics trade, animal rights, two gentle romances and several surprise revelations propel the plot, not to mention one of the best features—Mallon's ability to convey The bandbox book deadline-obsessed mentality of a monthly The bandbox book. This novel, however, was a bit of a let down I read Thomas Mallon s Fellow Travelers earlier this year and loved it It was a smart, touching, sad, well written book, and it was also hard to put down It was about DC in the 50 s and the cold war McCarthy era of red baiting. If it was a sharp struggle, it was a short one that prefaced his decision. The day-to-day pressures of putting out a magazine are only compounded by a string of troubles-the lead male model for the cover photo shoot is missing and is likely doing drugs; the vegetarian copy editor, Allen Case, is busy rescuing ill-treated animals from nasty shelters; a Hollywood actress, Rosemary LaRoche, the subject for a future magazine article is taken in with the writer Stuart Newman who has himself taken back to drinking because of the sex-crazed LaRoche.

Staff, to begin with. Rummaging his bottom drawer for another quart of vodka, Harris-a great curator of his own life story-managed to consider, yet again, with prideful amazement, how only five years had passed since Hiram Oldcastle, the publisher, had said, "You want it?

The latter is a pivotal character, because when his goons kidnap a kid from Indiana who has come to New York because he idolizes Bandboxthe plot acquires the elements of a thriller. The fact-checkers sometimes muttered that he had made no discernible shift from the methods of his old genre to those of nonfiction, but Stanwick's pieces were immensely popular and the occasion for some of Harris's more memorable cover lines: lend me your ears had announced Max's recent report on a spate of loan-sharking mutilations in Detroit.

Staff, for instance, had excellent reason to doubt the advisability of leaving London just then, with an unfinished play on his hands; but he was really no more than a mere, normal human being, and he did want very badly to go home.

Everyone has a bootlegger as well as a bookie.

After annual short-story winner turns out to be a plagiarist, the mole takes credit for having planted and exposed the author in the first place, bringing more disenchanted readers over to Cutaway.

All his characters are colorful and fully dimensional, however, especially Bandbox 's aging editor-in-chief, Jehoshaphat variously Joe, or Phat Harris, who seems closely modeled on the legendary Harold Ross of the New Yorker. At this late, sozzled hour, Harris had mistakenly fed the interoffice mail chute not the translucent canister containing his angry communication to Cuddles, but the still-half-full, six-dollar quart of hooch he was regularly supplied with by the countess in the fact-checking department.
