David Remnick is a writer with a rare gift for making readers understand the hearts and minds of our public figures. Whether it’s the decline and fall of Mike Tyson, Al Gore’s struggle to move forward after his loss in the 2000 election, or Vladimir Putin dealing with Gorbachev’s legacy, Remnick brings his subjects to life with extraordinary clarity and depth.

In Reporting, he gives us his best writing from the past fifteen years, ranging from American politics and culture to post-Soviet Russia to the Middle East conflict; from Tony Blair grappling with Iraq, to Philip Roth making sense of America’s past, to the rise of Hamas in Palestine. Both intimate and deeply informed by history, Reporting is an exciting and panoramic portrait of our times.


“This collection of articles by David Remnick can stand as literature. . . . He treats the reader as an informed, intelligent equal.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Each piece is worth reading. From the first word of the preface to the last word of the final feature story, Reporting is captivating.” —The Dallas-Ft. Worth Star Telegram

“A pleasure to read. The [essays] are intelligent and serious, but they’re also perceptive and funny. Remnick mixes literature, politics and history and then tries to bring them all together into a meaningful whole.” —Los Angeles Times

“The arrangement of pieces is so natural, and so symphonic, it's hard to recollect their discrete appearances: It seems as though Reporting is less an amalgamation of individual articles than it is a previously serialized volume at long last published whole.” —The San Francisco Chronicle
