Hillary Clinton’s Exit, Lorrie Moore’s Return


Today’s New York mag roundup of guest star obits for the Hillary Clinton campaign is bizarre! (It is reminiscent of, although nowhere near as toxic as, their group package on the characters of the Martha Stewart trial, which included this nutso defense of Peter Bacanovic and this wonderful piece on Stewart’s best gal-pal and assistant.) For Clinton this week, they got the homosexual (Andrew Holleran) and the French intellectual (BHL!) and a lady history professor—and the somewhat reclusive and largely non-productive fiction star (Lorrie Moore), who actually filed something very wonderful and strange. Moore is 51 and has not had a new book in ten years.
