Next Editor, Please

Well that didn't last too long....Tomorrow's NYT reports that Plimpton's replacement at The Paris Review is out:

Plimpton's Big Shoes Are Vacant Yet Again

By EDWARD WYATT Published: January 20, 2005

The Paris Review is searching again for a new editor, barely a year after appointing a replacement for George Plimpton, the only other person to fill the post in its five decades as one the nation's premier literary magazines.

Brigid Hughes, who succeeded Mr. Plimpton as the magazine's top editor last January, four months after his death, will leave The Review when her contract expires in March. Thomas H. Guinzburg, the president of the foundation that oversees the publication, said yesterday that the board had decided not to renew Ms. Hughes's contract.

Neither he nor Ms. Hughes would specify the reasons for her departure.
