We Don't Need No New Yorker

Years ago there was a magazine called The Chicagoan, a competitor of The New Yorker covering arts and culture in our city. The magazine had been forgotten for some time until historian Neil Harris discovered some long-lost issues hiding the University of Chicago's Regenstein Library. His subsequent research on the magazine can be found in the newly published The Chicagoan: A Lost Magazine of the Jazz Age. Cory Doctorow clearly loves it, as does Julia Keller at the Tribune. It sure would make an impressive addition to one's coffee table collection, wouldn't it?
