Who Will Be the New Wasserman?

Publishers Weekly discusses the LAT‘s search to replace Steve Wasserman at the Book Review. Leading non-internal candidates are said to include: David Kipen from the SF Chronicle and NPR, LA literary type David Ulin, and the Atlantic‘s Benjamin Schwarz. All respectable choices.

I vote for Schwarz, not that anyone asked. The Atlantic does a great job of covering non-obvious but non-esoteric books that don’t get over-exposed elsewhere in the book-reviewing industry.
