The Paris Review undergoes restructuring

Renowned for its support of emerging writers, one of America’s most prestigious literary journals, The Paris Review, has undergone a facelift. Under the new command of Philip Gourevitch, a non-fiction author and writer for The New Yorker, the Review‘s offices have moved, perhaps symbolically, from cramped, dingy quarters in an apartment building once owned by the magazine’s founder and longtime editor, George Plimpton, to a brighter, more spacious location. The move heralds a series of other changes — in distribution, format, design, and masthead — that amount to an entirely new vibe that Sheelah Kolhatkar of the New York Observer describes as “practically corporate.”
