Miriam Markowitz, Writer – The Nation

Having come out the high-minded journalism boot camp that is the Harper’s internship, Ms. Markowitz spent time as an assistant editor at that magazine before moving on to a similarly heady role as associate literary editor at The Nation—from America’s oldest monthly to America’s oldest weekly? Impressive. Her recent piece on Janet Malcolm is more than worth a read. We also hear she whips up a heck of a seder. [Photo by Sean Hemmerle.]
