Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review, resigns after misconduct

Lorin Stein, who took over as editor of The Paris Review in April 2010, resigned Wednesday amid an investigation into his behavior toward female colleagues.

Stein, 44, told the Paris Review board he had dated women at the magazine, including interns and writers, according to the New York Times.

He insisted all sexual encounters were consensual.

“At times in the past, I blurred the personal and the professional in ways that were, I now recognize, disrespectful of my colleagues and our contributors, and that made them feel uncomfortable or demeaned,” he wrote in a letter to the board, acquired by the Times.

“I am very sorry for any hurt I caused them.”

The magazine’s counsel reportedly received complaints from at least two female writers about Stein.

The Paris Review board began an investigation into Stein in October and was expected to meet Thursday, according to the Times.

Stein also resigned from his role as editor-at-large at Farrar, Straus and Giroux.
