“I find Silvers’ work ethic inspiring, if hard to mimic; he is in the office seven days a week, often until midnight, where he keeps a bed in a cupboard. He edits every piece in the NYRB himself. Contributors speak of his long polite memos revealing an encyclopedic knowledge of even the most obscure subjects, as well as a disregard for normal working hours; many have stories of receiving clippings and queries from ‘Bob’ in the middle of the night or as they sit down to Christmas lunch.”

“Less is more and more is more. It’s the middle that’s not a good place.”

“I WAS SO IGNORANT.   I couldn’t foresee that the scripted vulgarity of reality television was becoming the new societal norm. I naively assumed that the traditional American values of decency, fair play, equanimity, tolerance, truthfulness and individualism would prevail.”
~ Paul Schrader
