BACKGROUND: 

David Remnick was named editor of The New Yorker in 1998, and the magazine has won 13 National Magazine Awards since then. He joined The New Yorker as a staff writer in 1992, after 10 years at The Washington Post where he began his reporting career. He has authored numerous books, including the 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning Lenin’s Tomb: The Last Days of the Soviet Empire, which he wrote during his four years as the Post’s Moscow correspondent. In it, he examines the changes taking place in Russia after the fall of the Communist regime as experienced by its peasants as well as its politicians. Remnick has written for a variety of magazines, including Foreign Affairs, but he is most recognized for his work at The New Yorker, having written many of their celebrated profiles. His collection of essays, The Devil Problem and Other True Stories, portrays a variety of writers, athletes and politicians, ranging from Ralph Ellison to Michael Jordan to Mario Cuomo. Remnick was named Advertising Age’s Editor of the Year in 2000.

Remnick’s visit is hosted by the Department of English and Comparative Literature and its new major in Literary Journalism and doctoral emphasis in Creative Nonfiction. His visit is sponsored by the UCI Chancellor's Distinguished Fellows Series, which brings distinguished scholars and nonacademics to campus to share their expertise and experience with the UCI community. The series features fellows who have been selected for their contributions in disciplines that address the challenges of an increasingly interdependent world. As part of their residency, fellows give a free presentation to students, faculty, staff and the public.
