Shawn And Remnick

Now that New Yorker editor David Remnick is on the road to promote his Reporting, several interviews and profiles have popped up. Here's an interesting one, from the San Francisco Chronicle, which ends with him saying: "William Shawn never went anywhere, but his mind went everywhere. That's the way he worked. I'm a different animal. I'm just stupider. I need to actually be shown things."


  • He also was very engaging on the Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC a few weeks back. (It's available in podcast form, as well as in their archives.)

    Particularly entertaining were his reminiscences of life in Moscow and the visit of Katherine Graham when he wrote for the Washington Post.
