New Yorker #1, by New Yorker’s editor and writer Peter Kafka, explores the life of celebrities—their strange world, their personal lives, and the pressures and secrets they live under.
Written by Kafka and illustrated by John Fetterman, the book is a deep dive into the lives of people who have come out of the closet, or who have been forced to come out, to examine their lives from a wide variety of angles.
It offers a glimpse into the inner lives of many of today’s most famous people, including Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, and Kate Upton.
The story also explores the changing attitudes and values among celebrities and celebrities themselves.
It’s an absorbing, fascinating look into the world of the “mainstream celebrity,” the very people who most fans and critics of the magazine think it’s important to follow.
You can read the book on the New Yorker website or read it on the Kindle for $9.99.
