Mr. Personality: Profiles and Talk Pieces from the New Yorker

Mr. Personality: Profiles and Talk Pieces from the New Yorker Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A superb collection, Mr. Personality brings together the best of Mark Singers profiles and “Talk of the Town” pieces from The New Yorker (1977–1989). In these thirty-three witty and offbeat pieces, Singer presents a slice of New York and its citizens in a way that only he can. From prolific filmmaker Errol Morris and a family of superintendents to one of the last great zipper-fixers, a court buff in Brooklyn, and Mr. Personality himself, these remarkable portraits offer something for every reader.

About the Author

Mark Singer has been a staff writer for The New Yorker since 1974. He is the author of Funny Money, Mr. Personality, Citizen K, and Somewhere in America. He lives in New York City.
