Joseph H Cooper

Joseph H. Cooper was editorial counsel at The New Yorker from 1976 to 1996. Thereafter, he taught ethics and media law seminars, as well as “Medical Moments” literature-and-film courses, at Quinnipiac University – and was a Capstone Writing Mentor at the university’s school of medicine. In addition to his “Pauses and Moments” columns which appear at as “Rumblings from the lane next to the off ramp,” his Books, Film, and Education columns have appeared at The Huffington Post.

Retired, he now reads and writes in a Culver City bungalow, a congenial walk to his son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. He hopes to continue with “Pauses and Moments” columns at, for he would like to share still more “Rumblings from the lane next to the off ramp.”
