Nothing stops a headlong rush of writerly enthusiasm like a comma–that’s its job. Fortunately for her scribes, Lisa Rojany Buccieri knows just how to reconcile their charging passion with punctuation–and structure, pace and other helpful things. She helps shape and hone the writer’s voice, sustaining its drive, while making sure every sentence finds its essence. Consummate prose crafter and editorial Sherpa, LRB has authored more than 100 books (you read that right) and pushed countless authors to rise above the clouds and summit tricky narrative mountains of their own.
She likes to work with smart, large-hearted people, such as when she inhabited the mind of holocaust survivor Eva Kor for Surviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz. But she’ll work with Dummies too, earnestly believing that just about everybody has something to say, if only they could. Ever pioneering, she went to Brown and lives in LA, a combination that was tacitly illegal before the 21st century. She has a smile Fitzgerald would mention and she wins the sort of warm praise from colleagues that makes you think she’s baking cakes for them on the side. Lisa uses a purple pen and, unlike most editors, does not hate the exclamation point.
