The Paris Review’s Writers at Work Interview Series

“The first issue of The Paris Review under its new editor, Lorin Stein, hit newsstands recently, and it’s a thing of sober beauty.

Mr. Stein’s most radical act since taking over from Philip Gourevitch is visible only on the 57-year-old magazine’s crisply redesigned Web site, He’s made the entire run of The Paris Review’s storied interview series, previously almost impossible to find in electronic form, available there, free for the browsing. If there’s a better place to lose yourself online right now, I don’t know what it is.”
