Paris Review Editor Exits

Brigid Hughes, who replaced George Plimpton as editor of the Paris Review will leave the magazine in March, when her contract expires. No reason was given for the change, the NY Times‘ Edward Wyatt says.

“You can’t replace a George Plimpton,” Mr. Guinzburg added. “He is not just indispensable, he is irreplaceable.”
Nevertheless, when asked what he would say the board was looking for in a new editor, he replied, “I wouldn’t say.” Then, after a pause, he said, “George Plimpton.”
