    One thought on “Peter Arno: The Mad, Mad World of The New Yorker's Greatest Cartoonist”

    1. Milky, unfulfilling bio of the iconic New Yorker cartoonist and man-about-town. Maslin chronicles Arno's life as if filling out a grocery shopping list, dutifully noting how many covers and cartoons he did during each year, and so forth. Not much depth. Despite Arno remaining an interesting character, the author manages to find the most bland, ill-fitting ways of describing his life. He also spend a lot of space describing art which isn't reproduced in the book. This slim volume wastes more spac [...]

    2. Peter Arno was (and likely will always be remembered as) the greatest cartoonist ever to appear in The New Yorker. He was also, hard as it is to comprehend now, a major celebrity, appearing in society pages and gossip columns. A character like that would seem to lend itself to a pretty great biography, but alas, this one is just okay.The first problem is one that any biography of a visual artist is going to encounter- there just isn't enough art here. For whatever reason, some of his cartoons ar [...]

    3. Anyone who has looked at collections of the New Yorker’s cartoons (at least those dated from the 1920s to the 1960s) has seen Arno’s work. His cartoons are simple, yet bold, and are daring without being shocking. Of the artist himself I knew nothing until I read Maslin’s book.And I am glad I did. Maslin’s writing is excellent, studying as it does both Arno’s artistic career and his personal life. Separately they’d be interesting, together they’re fascinating. Arno’s relationship [...]

    4. Overall this is a solid book. It's well-researched and mostly well-written. There's a stretch near the end where things get a bit repetitive that an editor should've worked out with the author. Maslin studied Arno's life and work fully and is a professional peer (albeit in a different era) of the subject. I would give the book another star if there were more illustrations. It's a bit annoying when he launches into a discussion of a particular cartoon or cover and there is no reproduction of said [...]

    5. Books like this are always tricky to rate. Like, as biographies of this particular cartoonist go, this is pretty exhaustive? I guess? But just as a biography/book in general, it's not super-interesting. The most interesting parts are the general looks at the period, the world of socialites and early cartoons where the guy who came up with the idea and the guy who drew it were separate. Arno himself was definitely a character, by all accounts, and was undeniably talented, but the written descript [...]

    6. I have to say I personally found this person very dull. Though Arno had a fun life, it wasn't an interesting one. He just partied and drew. It was most interesting to here about his conflicts with the New Yorker, and about the history of the art department. His life of mindless fun then somewhat solitude would've been completely ignored had he not been such a great artist. It was intriguing, yet disappointing that Arno didn't write his own jokes.

    7. Here is a rare opportunity to step back in time to the start of The New Yorker Magazine and follow it's lead artist through his career. This is a great in depth look at a cartoonist and artist who defined a generation and made headlines with his life style which was the embodiment of the Jazz Age. Maslin does a superb job of bringing Arno to life and giving us insight to a bygone era.

    8. This was a well written biography of the man (Peter Arno), full of photos spanning decades. I especially enjoyed all the examples of the cartoonist's work that were sprinkled throughout the bookis was a giveaway

    9. The hstory of two icons (Peter Arno and The New Yorker) combining sophisticated forces. I enjoyed the rideenjoyed

    10. This is for cartoon aficionados and New Yorker buffs. I had no complaints about it, just that, in the long run, Arno was a bit shallow, in the proto-Mad Men school.

    11. I won this in a giveaway.This was OK but it seemed to bog down in minutia that was not really needed. I found myself bored at times.
