The New Yorker Archive’s Five Best Style Reads
- Kempt Staff
From Capote profiling Brando in 1957 to a 2010 visit to the Prince of Solomeo, otherwise known as Brunello Cucinelli, here are the five handsomest long-reads from the New Yorker Archive...
“The Duke in His Domain”: Truman Capote profiles Marlon Brando in 1957.
“Living Well Is the Best Revenge”: A 1962 profile on F. Scott Fitzgerald and the expat American couple who inspired his novel Tender Is the Night.
“Fifteen Years of the Salto Mortale”: It’s 1978 in the life of Johnny Carson during his heyday.
“Ornery”: Just a great title choice, accompanied by an equally great profile of Merle Haggard in 1990.
“The Prince of Solomeo”: A visit to the cashmere utopia of Brunello Cucinelli in 2010.
