I was thrilled when Pamela Paul agreed to let me interview her for Late Night Conversation, because she's a person I really respect and whose career path has been an inspiration to me. Pamela is editor of the New York Times Book Review and author of The Starter Marriage and the Future of Matrimony, Pornified, and Parenting, Inc. Most recently, she edited By the Book: Writers on Literature and the Literary Life from The New York Times Book Review.
We had an excellent conversation about her path to becoming an author
and editor, the future of book reviews, and how she and the staff are
working towards diversity in the reviews. I hope you'll have a listen here.
