A selection of works by LRB editor and journalist Mary-Kay Wilmers.

About the Author

A giant of English letters, Mary-Kay Wilmers was a founding contributor and editor of LRB, and has served as the magazine's editor in chief since 1992. Under her leadership, the magazine has grown to be the largest of its kind in Europe with a circulation of more than 70,000. After an itinerant youth spent between America, Portugal, Switzerland and Belgium, Mary-Kay Wilmers moved to the UK to read French and Russian at Oxford. Initially planning on a career as a simultaneous translator, Mary Kay-Wilmers instead found work as a secretary at Faber and Faber and as a contributor to the New Statesman. She went on to serve as deputy editor at the Listener and later worked for a time at the Times Literary Supplement before founding LRB. This book is being published to mark her 80th birthday.


Praise for Mary-Kay Wilmers: 'She [has] done more for the British essay than anyone in the last 150 years ... if this were France they'd be posting the Legion D'Honneur through her door every morning.' -- Andrew O'Hagan
I had never come across anyone who behaved so confidently or in such a cosmopolitan fashion. -- Alan Bennett
