On Miss Lora

April 17, 2012 | 1

The New Yorker‘s  Book Bench talked with Junot Díaz about “Miss Lora,” his story about an illegal liaison between a boy and much older woman published in the magazine this week.

is the editor of Little Brother Magazine, and the #LitBeat editor for The Millions. She also acts as the Toronto editor for Joyland. And she tweets, too.

One comment:

  1. In that Book Bench posting, Cressida Layshon makes the elementary error of transcribing Junot Diaz’s use of ‘complement’ as ‘compliment’.

    We all know that copyediting is being deemphasized at newspapers, but it is still painful to see it losing ground at The New Yorker (even if the blame for this can be laid at the feet of the much less revered online editor.)
