About the Author

Dwight MacDonald (1906-1982) was an American writer, editor, critic, and political gadfly. A prominent member of the group known as the New York Intellectuals, he served as the editor of first Partisan Review and his journal Politics. He later became a staff writer for The New Yorker, Esquire's film critic, and a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books. John Summers writes and lectures widely on American history and culture. Louis Menand is the Robert M. and Anne T. Bass Professor of English and American Literature and Language at Harvard University, and a staff writer at The New Yorker. He is the author of The Metaphysical Club-which won the Pulitzer Prize for History and the Francis Parkman Prize in 2002-and of American Studies, a collection of essays.


Dwight Macdonald was a magnificent destroyer of the vitues claimed for what he called Midcult, the rubbish of mas culture given a fig leaf of respectability by critics.
