There are still New Yorker Festival tickets available, so act fast! Not to mention a busy trade in festival events going on at Craigslist. As they say in The Scarlet Letter, “We must not always talk in the marketplace of what happens to us in the forest,” and vice versa. That said, give up now on getting into “Come Hungry”—you must remain hungry for another year, I’m afraid. Read some of Trillin’s books instead; they’ll fill you up!
Meanwhile, Lilit at Save the Assistants has a snappy account of her interview with New Yorker editor Jeffrey Frank. They’re even giving away a couple of copies of his new novel, Trudy Hopedale. Read on.
Hello! I’m Emily Gordon, an editor, critic, copywriter, and internet lover since 1992. Emdashes, born in 2004, spent its formative years as a New Yorker fan blog. (The project garnered some nice compliments and press.) It’s now a collection of conversations—generally civilized—about punctuation, magazines, movies, design, and other things that stir me.
Over the years, I’ve worked with a small army 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.
Looking for The New Yorker magazine? Kudos on your classy taste. Here’s how to contact The New Yorker.
The original Emdashes pencil logo was designed by Jennifer Hadley, based on a 1943 Dorothy Gray ad.
