James Marcus Named Deputy Editor at Harper’s Magazine

Columbia Journalism Review editor-at-large James Marcus will join Harper’s Magazine as deputy editor next month.  He will report to Harper’s editor Ellen Rosenbush.

Marcus (pictured) has edited at CJR since 2007, editing  the journal’s Ideas + Reviews section. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Nation, The New York Review of Books, and Salon.

He started blogging again earlier this month with this post at House of Mirth: “Just as there is no reason to start blogging, there is no reason to stop. So I’ll get rolling again with two savory snippets. First, an observation: there are moments when the writing life seems like a parade of small degradations. Can any other profession take such a toll on the ego?” (Via MAOrthofer)
