FSG Editor Lorin Stein Tapped as Editor for The Paris Review

parisreviewcopy.jpgToday The Paris Review board announced that Farrar, Straus and Giroux editor Lorin Stein will replace Philip Gourevitch as the editor of the beloved literary journal. He starts in April.

37-year-old Stein has been a Farrar, Straus and Giroux editor since 1998, working with writers like Jeffrey Eugenides, Jonathan Franzen, and James Wood. Titles he edited have won a slew of prizes, including the National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the Believer Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Here’s a Litblog Co-op interview and here’s a New York interview with the celebrated editor.

Here’s a statement from Stein: “The Paris Review is an institution like nothing else in American letters … It stands for the newest, the best, the most daring in writing and art, and that’s been the case now for more than fifty years. To be entrusted with that tradition is a true honor.”

The complete release is embedded after the jump.
