Private: Dave Eggers & The Balloonist

Ever since The New York Observer reported that Dave Eggers is launching “The Balloonist–a sort of younger, hipper Harper’s for the winsome set,” there has been speculation about Eggers’ role in the project.

I hear (and I will not divulge my sources because I have seen them reduce a woman to tears and dust with their wit alone) that Eggers will not have an editorial role in The Balloonist. He’s merely distributing it.

Ed. Note: It appears that the name of the new magazine is The Believer, not The Balloonist.
