To the rescue of Oxford American

Posted By on Fri, Feb 20, 2009 at 11:33 AM


I've been copied on an e-mail from Warwick Sabin, publisher of the Oxford American, to say someone who read about the literary magazine's troubles with the IRS thanks to an embezzling former employee will ride to the rescue.

A donor has reportedly promised a $100,000 contribution -- today -- enough to cover the IRS debt and then some.

Warwick tells me the check is supposed to arrive Monday by FedEx. No word on identity yet, if ever.
