The Paris Review’s Answer to Anonymous Sex

The Paris Review may be new to the blogosphere, but they already have a Plimptonian answer to New York magazine’s Sex Diaries, which chronicle a week in one person’s sex life.

The Paris Review solution is called The Culture Diaires, “a week in one reader’s life.”

This week’s installment is with Maud Newton.

9:47 A.M. Wake early (for a Sunday). I still haven’t replaced the French press that shattered week before last, so I make tea the Muriel Spark way: warming the pot first, measuring out loose leaves, drinking from china.

Later that day, Ms. Newton resumed work on her novel.
