he's also tall, dark and handsome

The New York Times plants a wet one on David Remnick, literary super hero.

He reports, writes and edits, a player-coach combination that works in magazine about as often as a Bill Russell shows up in the National Basketball Association; his families, writers and advertising clients feel like they are his focus; and he counts pennies at one of the most luxe publishing companies in the world.

In addition to editing The New Yorker, Remnick has a 672-page biography of Barack Obama coming out this week. Just the thought of reading that book makes me exhausted.
