After Plimpton

"I love what the Paris Review was, its traditions, what it stands for; but I didn't feel that I was being hired to act as the curator of a museum piece. Rather, that I should treat it as a living thing, with its own new form. It's a sign of my respect for Plimpton that I'm not trying to be him."

- An interview with Philip Gourevitch on his reporting and his plans for 'the biggest little magazine in history'.

Update: Another interview here, specifically on The Paris Review Interviews, Vol 1
