A New York Literary Salon

The New York Times profiles a group of literary twenty-somethings in New York who–in despair over the lack of publishing jobs–have founded their own online journal The New Inquiry. They also meet on a regular basis in an Upper East Side apartment to forge their own community of ideas and books.


I admire their desire to form a literary community like the one we grew up reading about in Paris in the 1920s, but one also gets the impression that the project could quickly devolve into a journal of political advocacy, which would quickly make the journal no different from dozens of others like it online…Best of luck to them.
