Paris Review Gets a New Senior Editor
From the Paris Review website:
Faithful readers, we have good news and bad news.
The bad news is that our senior editor, Deirdre Foley-Mendelssohn, is ditching us for Harper’s magazine. It is a grievous blow. During Deirdre’s tenure as editor of the Daily, our readership has doubled, and so has the amount we publish. Truly we have grown by leaps and bounds. At Harper’s, Deirdre will oversee the book section—one of the best in the country—so our loss is America’s gain. That anyway is our line, and we’re sticking to it.
The good news is that our deputy editor, Sadie Stein, has bravely agreed to step into Deirdre’s seven-league boots.
