James Wood on Move to New Yorker in the New York Observer

Filed under: Little Words   Tagged:

Up-and-comer Leon Neyfakh, who’s written about New Yorker matters before, surveys the Wood lands here. (In the near future, this extra-quick-takes category will have another, zippier title.)


I’m addicted to James Wood’s reviews. The magazine has made a great move in bringing him on board. Is he “the greatest literary critic in the world”? I think John Updike still holds that title.
