Silvia Killingsworth, A-issue Editor – The New Yorker

After spending time as Joanne Lipman’s assistant at the ill-fated Portfolio, Ms. Killingsworth found a home a few floors up, as the “A-issue” editor of The New Yorker (that’s Eustace Tilley-speak for assistant managing editor, more or less). Her byline also occasionally appears on the magazine’s hors d’oeuvre of a restaurant column, Tables for Two.
