Oh, yes, you can: Thanks to the NY Times' efforts to get their readers interacting with their writers, questions are being accepted for Amanda Hesser, food writer, interim restaurant critic this summer, and current editor of the T: Living Style Magazine. Ask her if she's glad she's not reviewing restaurants. Find out about the gourmand's life in Brooklyn (she moved there with husband New Yorker writer Tad Friend). Wonder why you know so much about her life and then realize it's because you pore over the NY Times like there's no tomorrow and find it necessary to know all you can about the writers you read.
