For over half a century, The Paris Review has garnered a reputation for discovering exciting new writers whose eclectic, raw, and visionary voices have shaped the landscape of American literature. It has debuted authors such as Philip Roth, Rick Moody, and Adrienne Rich, and works that are now considered some of the greatest in modern literature—Jim Carroll’s The Basketball Diaries, Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections—made their first appearance in the pages of this legendary journal.
The Paris Review has continued its success seeking out and championing the works of emerging writers - which is on full display in Penguin’s new anthology, The Unprofessionals: New American Writing from The Paris Review, edited and curated by Lorin Stein.
Lorin Stein joined The Paris Review as its third editor in 2010. During his tenure, the Review has received two National Magazine Awards, as well as Webby honors, Pushcart Prizes, and O’Henry Awards.
