Editor of The Paris Review, Lorin Stein, is returning, sort of, to his book publishing roots. Stein, who worked in the editorial department at Farrar, Straus and Giroux from 1998 to 2010, is taking on an editor-at-large role at the storied Macmillan division.
In his new role at FSG, Stein, who has been at The Paris Review for five years, will be acquiring and/or editing between four and eight titles a year; he will be reporting to editor-in-chief Eric Chinski.
Speaking to the role, Stein said he was "delighted to have a foot in the book business, and to work on longer projects with writers and colleagues I admire so much." He added, though, that his dedication to his magazine job remains secure, saying his commitment to the publication "remains stronger than ever.”
