Politico Editors Spotted Reading Tanabe’s Book

In an interview with Deborah Kalb, ex-Politico writer Karin Tanabe, who wrote The List, a novel based on her experiences working at the male-dominated, competitive publication where long hours are a given, spilled a few more details on the aftermath of writing the controversial book.

For instance, some Politico reporters have refused to read the book and shun those that do. Still, some editors couldn’t resist.

“Well, I haven’t heard anything negative except a murmur that a few reporters there refuse to read my book and chastise others for doing so! Fair enough. But I’ve also heard that two editors were spotted reading it inside the newsroom and I’ve had wonderful support from friends who are still there and friends who have gone on to other media jobs.”

Tanabe, who lives in Washington and Dubai, is working on another book about the auction industry. Her protagonist works at Christie’s in New York.
