Whatever happened to James Linville, long-time Paris Review #2? If anyone should take over as editor, it should be him.
Last I heard of him, he was in London. Doing what?
Then there's this from a February 16 article in the American Conservative, "An American in Paris" by Richard Cummings:
"James Linville, the former managing editor of the Paris Review, who confirms that 'the Paris Review was Peter Matthiessen's cover for the CIA,' says that Matthiessen is 'haunted by the CIA.' His name remains on the masthead as an editor."
