And now George Plimpton is dead
Best know for editing Paris Review, one of the oldest and strongest literary journals (and there are now literally thousands of them), Plimpton also had fun being a Renaissance man, having been a conductor, sportsperson and actor for very short durations. He was also the evil spelling bee host in a recent Simpsons episode. Incidentally, a new Paris Review anthology with a sexy cover and grab-me title is featured in several bookstores, but don't forget there's an older anthology out there, too.
