Over the weekend I got to swing it on the flippity-flop with The Baffler founder Tom Frank and John Summers, the brand-new editor and publisher of the beloved culture-crit journal. The two were in town to go through some old files and, in Summers’s case, box up and ship them to Cambridge, Mass., where he lives. Yes, that’s right: Chicago will no longer be able to claim The Baffler (est. 1988) as its own, though Summers says the publication isn’t about to abandon its roots any time soon. “Chicago has been vital to The Baffler‘s sensibility, which won’t change much,” he says, adding that Eugenia Williamson—a native and U. of C. alum who “won’t soon forget her Chicago ties”—is a contributing editor. Other fancy writers from around these parts are probable contributors as well.
