Harper’s Announces New Editor
Harpers announced that Roger D. Hodge, a 38-year-old who has worked with the magazine since 1996, will take over the editor position in April. The New York Times ran an interesting profile of the new boss and discussed his childhood on a ranch in Texas.
This little nugget in the article really caught my attention: “Mr. Hodge, who lives in Brooklyn, is married and has two children, has been working on an article for the coming month about Cormac McCarthy, a writer of western epics whose recent novel included a seminal scene that took place on the land that Mr. Hodge’s family owns.” Shit, now I’m going to go re-read No Country for Old Men again.
