Looking back on big decisions she’s made, Judith Newman sees that seemingly small things—taste, style—matter and sometimes they matter more over the years, not less.
Judith Newman writes about entertainment, science, business, beauty, and popular culture for a wide variety of publications, including The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Prevention, AARP, and National Geographic. As a book reviewer, she reviews regularly for People and writes the column on “Help Desk” for The York Times Book Review. She is a contributing editor for Allure and Prevention. Newman’s upcoming book for Harper Collins, To Siri With Love, was inspired by a 2014 article in The New York Times about her her autistic son’s relationship with Siri; it became the most emailed piece in the newspaper that year. She has also co-authored several books, including The Girl: A Life In The Shadow of Roman Polanski. Earlier, Miramax published her memoir, You Make Me Feel Like An Unnatural Woman: Diary of a New (Old) Mother, about becoming a mother late(ish) in life.
