Description
Longtime New Yorker reporter David Remnick here collects the cream of his in-depth stories from the magazine over 15 years, particularly on Russian and Jewish subjects, including Vladimir Putin working with Gorbachev's legacy; appraisals of Benjamin Netanyahu, Ariel Sharon, and Sari Nusseibeh of the P.L.O.; and Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Václav Havel.

"As a writer, [David] Remnick practices a classic journalistic style: concrete nouns, active verbs, graceful sentences, solid paragraphs, subtle transitions. A sly wit often punches up the prose, and he is hip in the original sense of the word, which was 'knowing,' not 'fashionable.' One measure of his accomplishment is what he avoids: jargon, prophecy, slang that instantly grows moldy, those ugly words that come out of sociology or the Beltway ('proactive,' 'impact' as a verb, too many others). I've been edited by Remnick and interviewed by him, and came away from each experience respecting his intelligence and professionalism. As an editor, he wants to make the writer's work better; as a writer, he treats the reader as an informed, intelligent equal."—NYTimes
