Deborah Solomon Parts Ways With The New York Times Magazine

After heading up the “Questions For” page of The New York Times Magazine for eight years, Deborah Solomon has fallen victim to editor Hugo Lindren’s staff overhaul and is leaving the title.  Solomon joins former deputy editor Alex Star and “The Medium” columnist Virginia Heffernan as The NYT Magazine’s most recent departures.  Solomon discussed her next steps in a letter to The Observer.

My immediate plan is to devote myself to my long-overdue, almost-finished biography of Norman Rockwell, which will be published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. I had eight great years writing the column, and I have been encouraged by the paper’s top brass to continue writing for the paper. Naturally, I also plan to continue asking as many impertinent questions as possible.
