I Was Playboy's Literary Editor
"I was hired in 2005 to help resuscitate the magazine's literary tradition. My sense of mission ran high and, for my nearly seven years there, was hard to argue with. Very few magazines had room anymore for fiction or literary work then and even fewer do today. ... I recited our latest contributors' names, too, at every opportunity, and described the pieces written - A S Byatt on John Donne, Jodi Picoult on Wonder Woman, Sherman Alexie on the Indigo Girls, new fiction by Margaret Atwood, Martin Amis, Maile Meloy."
