Adrienne Miller, IN THE LAND OF MEN
Apr 18th, 2020 by zibbyowens
Adrienne Miller is the author of the novel The Coast of Akron and In the Land of Men: A Memoir. She was the literary and fiction editor of Esquire from 1997 to 2006. In the Land of Men is her coming-of-age story in the male-dominated literary world of the 1990s, during which she became the first female literary editor of Esquire at the age of 25. It's about power dynamics, the workplace, and as she aptly says, "how to build a self." We talked about looking back at our twenties, her relationship with and the loss of writer David Foster Wallace, and being the ultimate decision maker about your own life.
