“New in Paperback”

“FLASH: The Making of Weegee the Famous, by Christopher Bonanos. (Holt, $20.) Bonanos, the city editor of New York magazine, offers a compelling portrait of the 20th-century photographer Arthur Fellig, whose tabloid images riveted viewers. His life in the city began when he was a poor immigrant child living on the Lower East Side, and culminated in his becoming a photojournalist with practically a supernatural instinct for how to create a dramatic picture.” NY Times, 08/02/2019
