Radar Online reveals the backstage drama with Kurt Andersen and Graydon Carter during the making of Spy: The Funny Years, a new coffee-table book celebrating the magazine’s peak half-decade (“certain to be on the holiday wish lists of aging hipsters,” backhands Publishers Weekly). The parody—and it is a parody—goes on quite a bit, but is highly amusing to those who liked that sort of thing back in ’86. (My favorite jab: “Michael Wolff has an uncanny ability to stretch a 100–word idea into a 4,000–word column.”)
