“Gossip Girl” in The New Yorker, no less

Here’s two entities you might not have expected to see together — Gossip Girl and The New Yorker. In this week’s issue of the magazine, Janet Malcolm says of the uber-popular Y.A. series:

Von Ziegesar pulls off the tour de force of wickedly satirizing the young while amusing them. Her designated reader is an adolescent girl, but the reader she seems to have firmly in mind as she writes is a literate, even literary, adult.

Note to Naomi Wolf, “Get a sense of humor.”

Pam Spencer Holley, you are so vindicated.
