Paris Review Forms Search Committee to Replace Philip Gourevitch

1000062340L.jpgAfter five years as editor-in-chief of the Paris Review, Philip Gourevitch has stepped down–leaving open one of the most coveted spots in literary journalism.

Most recently, Gourevitch was the co-author of “Standard Operating Procedure.” According to the NY Observer, Paris Review Foundation director Terry McDonnell, New York Review of Books editor Bob Silvers, and Paris Review founder Peter Matthiessen will lead a literary search party to replace the editor.

Gourevitch admitted that he was worn out from working on a new book while editing the journal. Here’s more from the article: “Mr. Gourevitch said he felt like he’d done a pretty good job holding it together, but that he felt ‘extremely exhausted;’ at the end. ‘I didn’t want to do that again,’ he said.”
