a famous US magazine published each week in New York. It is known for its long articles, fiction, humour and comic drawings. It was established in 1925 by Harold Ross, and its writers have included Ogden Nash, Dorothy Parker, James Thurber and S J Perelman. The English journalist Tina Brown was the magazine’s editor from 1992 to 1998, and some readers complained about the new, more lively style she introduced.
