After spending time at Tina Brown’s Daily Beast, Ms. Syme headed to an ever-so-brief spell at the New York Public Library. She has written for Elle, Radar, Page Six Magazine, Jane, The Observer, The Millions, and GQ. Currently at work on a book on F. Scott Fitzgerald mistress Sheila Graham, Ms. Syme is heard to have spoken on the matter of her previous dalliance with Ryan Adams by more than a few Observer staffers, which, when asked for quote, she adamantly denies: “not entirely accurate” but “he is a good friend.”
