David Remnick 2006

The New Yorker

David Remnick was named editor of The New Yorker in July 1998. He had been a staff writer at the magazine since September, 1992, and has written over a hundred pieces for the magazine. Recent subjects have included such people as Alekasandr Solzhenitsyn, Ralph Ellison, Katharine Graham, Pope John Paul II, Michael Jordan, and George Stephanopoulos.

Mr. Remnick joined The New Yorker after ten years at the Washington Post. He began his reporting career as a staff writer at the Post in 1982, where over the years he covered stories for the Metro, Sports, and Style sections. In 1988, he started a four-year tenure as a Washington Post Moscow correspondent, an experience that formed the basis of his 1993 book on the former Soviet Union, Lenin's Tomb. In April 1994, Lenin's Tomb received both the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and a George Polk Award for excellence in journalism. He was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in 1998, for his piece on Mike Tyson, Kid Dynamite Blows Up.

His books include Resurrection (1997), on the struggle to build a Russian state from the ruins of the Soviet empire, The Devil Problem (and Other True Stories) (1997), a collection of his New Yorker pieces, King of the World: Muhammad Ali and the Rise of an American Hero (1998) and Reporting: Writings from the New Yorker (2006), a collection of his profiles from the magazine's past 15 years.

David Remnick received his B.A. from Princeton University. He resides in New York with his wife, Esther B. Fein, a reporter for the Times, and their three children.
