The New York Times Book Review Gets New Deputy Editor

David Kelly, who has been with the New York Times Book Review since 2005, has been promoted to Deputy Editor. Kelly will succeed Bob Harris, who left the paper last month. According to the New York ObserverSam Tanenhaus, the Senior Editor of the Book review, wrote that Kelly was more than qualified for the position.

“It’s not surprising that so skilled an editor should also be a witty and amusing writer (see, for example, David’s reviews of memoirs by Barbara Walters and James Wolcott and his wry essay on The Sopranos and cultural studies),” stated Tanenhaus in a memo announcing the change. “No one in our shop commands more respect, and no one is better liked. Please join me in congratulating David on his new job.”
