Paris Review Hawks Its Editors in Holiday Auction

Lunch with Mr. Stein?

Frustrated because you can’t very well buy the Steve Jobs biography for all your Republican uncles this Christmas? Well the Paris Review has the perfect solution: a holiday auction offering the company of its editors and friends! Act quickly — high tea with Jon-Jon Goulian, “one of New York’s best read and dressed and most charming conversationalists,” is going for $100.

Also on offer are meals with Paris Review editors, including Lorin Stein (to discuss Henry Green’s Loving), Sadie Stein (Barbara Pym’s Excellent Women) and Deirdre Foley-Mendelssohn (Jeffrey Eugenides’s The Marriage Plot “over a bowl of tatziki.”)

And then there’s the invite to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit party, sure to be a major draw for your average Paris Review reader. Paris Review Hawks Its Editors in Holiday Auction
