London War Notes
MOLLIE PANTER-DOWNES
There were 153 wartime ‘Letters from London’ for The New Yorker: about ‘the quotidian stream of English life, of what it was like actually to live in a war, of what the government was doing, of the nervous sound of the air-raid sirens, of the disappearance of the egg, of children being evacuated. In a steady flow of copy, directed to editors she had never met at a magazine she had never visited, she un- doubtedly did more to explain wartime England to American readers than any- one else in the field’ (New Yorker obit).
