Susan Greenberg

Susan Greenberg is a British editor who has often been called “The Editor’s Editor” because in addition to her own long distinguished career as an editor, she has emerged as one of the leading voices about the art and science of editing. She wrote the influential books Editors Talk about Editing: Insights for Readers, Writers and Publishers and A Poetics of Editing. She is widely considered to be one of the UK’s most esteemed editors.

Susan Greenberg on Gen Jones:
Susan has resisted classification as a Baby Boomer, and wrote in March 2022 in response to an article about Gen Jones: “I salute this distinction, and happily join ‘Generation Jones’.” When someone the following year referred to a “tail end boomer,” Susan immediately corrected her in February 2023: “The later period is known as ‘Generation Jones.’” She corrected another writer in April 2024 by pointing out: “Our cohort is more properly part of ‘Generation Jones’, which covers 1954-65”

I was eleven. #GenerationJones”  Andrew wrote in July 2022 in The National Review: “I’m dating myself (again), this time, I suppose, by admitting that I still buy DVDs. That’s my Generation Jones fondness for ownership…”  In April 2023, Andrew wrote about a “Generation Jones manifesto”
