Gutted to learn Robert Silvers passed away earlier this week. He was undoubtedly one of the smartest people I have ever met. In the middle of our shoot he corrected one of the two assistants he required to keep up with his work load on a grammatical correction in one sentence of a 10k word piece without ever breaking eye contact. The world is definitely a less interesting to place without him. #robertsilvers #newyorkreviewofbooks #genius #hero

"There are no strictures, no limits. Nobody saying you can't do something. No subject, no theme, no idea that can't be addressed in-depth. There's an infinity of possibilities. Whatever work is involved is minor compared to the opportunity. That is the essence. That is the nature of the magazine." - NYRB co-founder and editor Robert Silvers in conversation with @nymag in 2013. Both Silvers and renowned publisher George Braziller passed away this week - two big losses to all of us who follow in their footsteps. @nyrbooks #GeorgeBraziller #RobertSilvers #publishing #NYRB #NewYorkReviewofBooks #bookreviews #bookreview #criticism #literarycriticism #culturalcriticism

A portrait of Robert Silvers hangs above my desk. That's how much he and his work mean to me. Silvers is the reason The Mantle exists. It was his vision, dedication to the editing craft, and insatiable appetite for a critical argument that inspired me to start The Mantle. And whenever I'm feeling lazy or I question the value of my work, I look to his visage for motivation. Silvers and the New York Review of Books have been and will remain my guiding star. Silvers passed away on March 20 at the age of 87. He is already missed. #robertsilvers #portrait #motivation #inspiration #newyorkreviewofbooks #inmemoriam @nybooks @nyrbooks

RIP Robert Silvers. In 2014, he came to @tiff_net for Martin Scorsese's documentary "The 50 Year Argument." While this unfortunate pose looks like I'm failing an audition, I swear it was a lively conversation. #newyorkreviewofbooks

#RIP #RobertSilvers , co-founding editor of the #NewYorkReviewofBooks . He was a brilliant, demanding, funny, painstaking and inspiring editor, a walking chronicle of postwar literary-political history, an intimidating sweetheart, and very dear to me. At the end of an editorial session, once he had identified all your piece's weaknesses, evasions and missed opportunities, he would close with a brusque, even peremptory, but always, somehow, hopeful, "See what can be done." In the world according to Bob Silvers, there was always something to be done.

Can we all stop a moment and appreciate the use of ligatures by the New York Review of Books? Can we?

5/5 stars . "Sometimes, immersed in his books, there would come to him the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read; and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know." . The back of the book describes Stoner as a work of "quiet perfection", and I can't think of a better description. This book IS perfection. It's pure and simple, there are no bells or whistles here. It's the story of one man's life, and the ebbs and flows that are a part of simply being human. . William Stoner is born into a farming family, and eventually goes off to the University of Columbia to take his degree is agricultural studies. During his requisite English course, he discovers his passion for books. With the encouragement of his Professor and mentor, Archer Sloan, Stoner changes his degree to English studies, drastically changing the course of his life. Stoner grows into the scholarly life, eventually becoming an English professor, while working on his own writing. He is married, thought not happily, and has a child. He develops friendships and feuds, suffers losses and enjoys a great love. These are the mundane parts of life, yet Williams has crafted them so compellingly. . It's hard to articulate what makes this book so beautiful, but it's a rich telling of an ordinary man's life. For a stoic man, Stoner always remains true to himself, often following his heart or morals rather than following the path of expectation. If you're looking for a shocking work of drama, turn the other way. If you would like to examine the human condition and explore the sum of one man's simple life, this is for you. Williams asks the fundamental question that we all ponder as we move through life, day by day - what makes a life, a life? I couldn't put this book down, and I finished knowing I had read something truly special. . . . . . @nyrbooks

In which a reference to Wittgenstein—in Kenneth Roth's take on Rosa Brooks's new book, "How Everything Became War and the Military Became Everything," in the 3/9 issue of the NYRB—serves as illustrative analogy for the relative difficulties of debates pertaining to counterterrorism strategies and potential legislative overreach, and a beer-bottle cap serves as metatextual visual footnote for said analogy, and the latter is deployed to over-underscore the former because one happened to have said cap on hand, since one decided to keep it out of amused admiration for the brewery's reference to this philosophical construct in its very namesake and labeling, which is in fact what encouraged one to try this brewery's beers in the first place, and to then bring several bottles of their beers back home to NYC from a trip down south about a year ago, soon after which all of those beers were consumed rather quickly, because this brewery's beers are very good, but a couple bottles and caps were preserved because one was unwilling to fully part with their charmingly branded presence, all of which allowed for all of the above to come into definitively verbose confluence here, because one couldn't resist drawing it all out. To be filed under 'Utterly Useless Analog Hyper-Associations,' which is something along the lines of my pointless area of expertise and favorite conjectural archival category. Also, Brooks's book seems broadly insightful, Roth's review is thorough and balanced, and The Duck-Rabbit Brewery's beers are inarguably excellent. Of note: They make exclusively dark beers, an interesting marginal fact to consider in this context. @newyorkreview @theduckrabbitbrewery #newyorkreviewofbooks #rosabrooks #kennethroth #books #bookreview #booksofinstagram #theduckrabbit #theduckrabbitcraftbrewery #beer #craftbeer #beersofinstagram #wittgenstein #footnotes #futility #useless #marginalia
