Description

Over the course of its illustrious and often controversial history, Playboy magazine has published the works of some of the world’s greatest writers, from Beat poets to Nobel laureates. In 1979, Hugh M. Hefner addressed a reunion of Playmates in Los Angeles. “Without you,” he said. “I’d have a literary magazine.” This anthology presents an amazingly diverse selection of a half century’s worth of entertaining stories, journalism, humor, and cartoons. Featuring articles and interviews drawn from more than five decades; fiction from the likes of Woody Allen, Saul Bellow, Michael Chabon, Robert Coover, Jonathan Safran Foer, David Mamet, Jay McInerney, Joyce Carol Oates, Jane Smiley, Scott Turow; and cartoons from the likes of Gahan Wilson, Shel Silverstein, and Jules Feiffer, this volume will serve as a perfect bedside companion.show more
