Gone by Renata Adler Review
I have recently read Gone by Renata Adler which is about her time working at The New Yorker when it was edited by William Shawn. William Shawn in the telling of the book is treated almost too kindly for some of the things he does (pushing back articles for months and not letting writers publish them elsewhere) but seems to be a good editor. The book is crisply written and highly recommended.
