with questions for the New Yorker senior library staff, who will be answering them here. The first column will appear very soon; look for it, then dare to submit your own. Want your query to be pondered and investigated at the heart of the brain trust? (If I add "the belly of the beast," we'll have a Bodies-worthy anatomical mixed metaphor on our hands.) Here's your chance. I'm obviously screening questions, so make yours a good one. Feel free to be anonymous; just let me know what you prefer.
Also, via Boing Boing, it's Chico Marx on the piano—literally, on the piano.
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and pre-web internet nut. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent many years as a New Yorker fan blog. The project garnered some nice compliments and press.
The blog’s now treading the territories of punctuation, publications, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a brilliant brigade of culture writers, editors, and artists. You can read all about the people who've helped build Emdashes here at “Who We?” (That’s a New Yorker joke. Old habits die hard.)
I welcome submissions, questions, corrections, and ardent, obsessive contributors. I also host occasional book-related contests and giveaways. Questioners and publishers, just email me.
