"The Book Review has a long tradition of being a political Switzerland," Pamela Paul, the recently departed editor of The New York Times books supplement said in 2018. As of late, the 125-year-old institution has filled its pages with interviews from celebrity authors, reading recommendations based on Netflix interests, and flaccid, information-heavy criticism. Without a new formal leader, where is The New York Times Book Review headed? This week, Kyle Paoletta explores this question in an essay for our Books & the Arts section.
