George Plimpton Paris Review

Sept. 26, 2003

Writer and Paris Review editor George Plimpton dies at his Manhattan apartment. He was 76. Plimpton's writing combined elegance and wit, and often showed a willingness to make himself the butt of the joke. Paper Lion was the most famous of several books he wrote chronicling Walter Mitty-like experiences in sports and other endeavors. Hear NPR's Bob Edwards and NPR's Frank Deford.
Editor's note: The staff of The Paris Review mourns the loss of their longtime editor, mentor, and friend, who presided over the magazine for fifty years with spirit, grace, and wisdom.

Yes, he was an entertaining writer, wasn't he.
