The Paris Review’s Emily Nemens in Conversation

When she was appointed editor of the Paris Review, Emily Nemens stepped into one of the most luminous positions in American letters, editing today’s most talented writers. What the public may not have known is the wildly original literary voice she is in her own right. Join Nemens and Scripps Associate Professor of English Aaron Matz for a conversation about her highly anticipated new novel, The Cactus League, and the balance between the life of a writer and the demands of editing America’s paramount English-language literary magazine.
