Reporting at Wit’s End is a thick, recently issued collection of stories by St. Clair McKelway, for years associated with The New Yorker, writing from the 1930s, ’40s, World War II, and beyond. Mainly it’s a book of characters, espionage, and insights into the world before complications set in. The title may be misleading. We would have called it “Brilliant Reporting.”
