podcast 6

In this episode, Daniel Smith interviews n+1 editor Keith Gessen. They reminisce about old times and dish about Keith’s cameo appearance on Gossip Girl. Then, they get down to business and discuss Keith’s most recent article for Vanity Fair, titled “The Book on Publishing” (October 2011). This article uses Chad Harbach’s book The Art of Fielding as a lens to examine developments in print and electronic publishing. Keith and Daniel discuss what these changes mean for the industry, the authors, and the reading public.
