Who said, "Business is war"? — Amy Wicks

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE: Where in the world is James Truman? The former Condé Nast editorial director has been laying low since departing Louise McBain's LTB Media, just after the launch of Culture & Travel. But Elle has the scoop on his whereabouts through contributor Leanne Shapton's monthly Jet Setter column. Shapton, an illustrator and author who coincidentally is Truman's girlfriend, writes up her picks for shopping, hotels, restaurants and activities in far-off destinations, including Morocco, Ireland and Turkey. And Truman has apparently been tagging along for the ride. Writes Shapton of her latest trip to Mallorca, Spain: "From Es Blau, our serene villa on Orient Express's La Residencia estate my BF and I motored to nearby Soller for El Mercado Municipal fresh fish, and bread at Patisserie Marroig." Shapton also chronicles the pair's recreational pursuits: "My boyfriend channeled local hero Rafael Nadal on La Residencia's tennis courts..." and even includes details on activities that required less, uh, equipment. "At sunrise, post siesta and at dust, we skinny dipped in a tiny cove just steps from our villa, often joined by other naked nut-brown bathers." Sadly, Shapton did not include pictures of their exploits.
