Best Lit Blog (2013)

Paris Review Daily

When Lorin Stein took over as editor of the Paris Review in 2010, one of his first orders of business was to give the venerable print publication's website a makeover. And so the wonderful Paris Review Daily was launched. Edited by the smart, savvy, bespectacled Sadie Stein (no relation), the blog is updated weekdays with intelligent essays on art and culture, author interviews, a morning roundup of literary news, and much more. Never predictable and always entertaining, the Daily might have a clip from a 1952 documentary on William Faulkner one day and a brilliant dispatch from John Jeremiah Sullivan (the magazine's Southern editor) the next. Alas, Lorin Stein, a former fiction editor at FSG, no longer writes his literary advice column. But his book recommendations in the weekly post "What We're Loving" will never steer you wrong.
