A great correction on this New York Times article:
An earlier version of this post misquoted Mr. Remnick on his comparison between the book and a New Yorker article he had previously written. He said the book would not be a “pumped up” version of the article; he did not say that it would not be a “pimped out” version of the article.
Natalia showed me this really neat Middlebury site today. It’s fun to explore and really fresh for a major university.
