Bob Silvers e la NYRB

Emily Stokes, del Financial Times, intervista Bob Silvers, fondatore ed editor della New York Review of Books, che quest'anno compie 50 anni. "As an editor working at a literary magazine, I find Silvers’ work ethic inspiring, if hard to mimic; he is in the office seven days a week, often until midnight, where he keeps a bed in a cupboard. He edits every piece in the NYRB himself. Contributors speak of his long polite memos revealing an encyclopedic knowledge of even the most obscure subjects, as well as a disregard for normal working hours; many have stories of receiving clippings and queries from “Bob” in the middle of the night or as they sit down to Christmas lunch". ft.
