Sacre Blurb!? (Do they give Pulitzer Prizes for puns?)
Let us celebrate the 55th anniversary of our favorite literary magazine, The Paris Review . Though it lacks listings - sacre blurb!-- it looks impressive on one's living room bookcase (hint: open and close several times rather roughly to make it appear it has been read with vigor). Paris Review editor Philip Gourevitch (if you're reading this: Hire Me!) screenwriter Stephen Gaghna and novelist Mona Simpson, along with other "literary guest" will raise a wordy toast to the publication of The Paris Interviews, Volume 3 , which boasts such names as Evelyn Waugh, Harold Pinter, John Cheever and Joyce Carol Oates.
