Jemima Khan to guest edit special edition of New Statesman
Jemima Khan has been announced as the guest editor of Thursday’s edition of the New Statesman - bringing a host of celebrity writing talent with her.
The current affairs publication is producing the free speech special edition with exclusive input from Julian Assange, (whom Khan bailed), alongside a candid interview with Nick Clegg on the “pain of being hated.”
Actor Tim Robbins has also been recruited to pen a witty and informative article which “takes the press to task.”
Also making an appearance is Oliver Stone who passes judgement on the performance of Barack Obama as the US president launches his re-election bid.
Editor Jason Cowley, who will be deferring to Khan for the special edition, said: “We met for a Marmite-and-toast breakfast in January and have been planning the issue ever since. Her enthusiasm and diligence have delighted the whole team.”
