Simon Rich, 25, Writer
We read two things every week: The New Yorker and Frank Rich's column. So imagine how jealous we are of Simon Rich, who is not only the Sunday Times columnist's son, and thus basks in his paternal love, but who has been published in our favorite magazine! (After The International Socialist Review of course.) And who's in roughly the same advertising demographic as us! A former president of The Harvard Lampoon and a current writer at Saturday Night Live, he's published two comedy collections and has a novel coming next year. Our novel—about a young film critic at a small culture magazine, navigating his way through love, Brooklyn and diabetes—probably isn't coming out any time soon. (Cough, cough, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, cough, cough.) WE ENVY YOU SIMON RICH!
