There are many yardsticks for fame and influence, but by my lights, you haven’t really “made it” until you’ve appeared in a clue for the Times Sunday crossword. In which case, we’ve made it. The Times may direct its complimentary jeroboam of Dom Perignon to 544 West 27th Street, New York, NY, 10001.

The clue is “Contributors to The Paris Review, e.g.” The answer is eight letters. Take your best guess.

    I was going to say WRITERS, but then I counted. You know, math. Not my best subject. How about LITERATI?

    It is, as many have guessed, “literati.” “Jack offs” made me laugh more than it should’ve.
