Paris Review Names New Editor

Lorin Stein of Farrar, Straus Giroux will succeed Philip Gourevitch as editor of The Paris Review.
Read Dave Itzkoff’s piece in New York Time’s Art Beat.

Hopefully this will give Gourevitch time to write more books and New Yorker pieces. Few books I have read are as compelling or as sobering as We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families: Stories from Rwanda, a heartbreaking but beautifully written account of the Rwandan genocide and the devestation of it’s aftermath.

About kara

We know our letters just fine, and we know our numbers to a certain point, but books were always the realm of four-eyed poindexters with bowler hats and cravats. That’s why it pleases us so that America’s proud illiterates are finally stepping up and pushing back against the crushing tide of education that threatens to swallow us all into its gaping maw of checked facts. Champions of the Ignorantiat will not like it here.
