Carr, Andersen: Lots of love there
The love affair apparently started way back in 2001, when Kurt Andersen employed David Carr at Inside.com. Carr was, as Andersen wrote in New York magazine recently, “a quirky, entertaining, singular writer.”
That column, as we noted last week, was essentially a thinly-veiled ode to Carr and his Carpetbagger persona (“He is preternaturally perfect for the Web”).
Well, Carr and the Times will return the favor to Andersen on March 8, when the pair of lovebirds particpate in a sold-out — sold-out! — discussion concerning Andersen’s forthcoming Heyday and, well, probably a lot of those aforewritten anecdotes from back in the heyday.
