Ethan Nosowsky Named Editorial Director at McSweeney’s


Ethan Nosowsky has left his role as editor-at-large for Graywolf Press to take a job as editorial director at McSweeney’s, announcing the move today on Twitter. Mr. Nosowsky used to work as an editor at Farrar, Straus and Giroux and is also the “consultant for innovative literature” at the Creative Capital Foundation. He has a more traditional book publishing background than some at McSweeney’s, a sign that that its San Francisco-based books division will likely become more aggressive about acquiring work. He arrives in the wake of several departures from the editorial staff there. He has edited books by Geoff Dyer, Emily Barton, Stephen Elliott and others.
