Jennifer Paull writes about travel, food, style, drink, and other subjects that are either the stuff of life or the stuff of bourgeois fascination, depending on the day. She spent many years as a travel guidebook editor, winning a Lowell Thomas silver medal, but most of her accolades are for longevity. After a BA in English literature from Wellesley, she went for a purely selfish MA at Columbia. Now she lives in Brooklyn.
