Newsweek has a short interview with the new editor of the Paris Review, Brigid Hughes. It contains little we haven’t heard already, although their new anthology sounds interesting:
It is called â€œThe Paris Review Book for Planes, Trains, Elevators and Waiting Rooms.â€ As I hope the title suggests, itâ€™s fiction and poetry organized according to lengthâ€”the idea being that if you happen to be in an elevator with a book, you can open up to the elevator chapter and find a short poem that will take you 30 seconds to read while you go up to the 20th floor. Or if youâ€™re in the waiting room, we have a novella for you to read while you sit and wait.
