Correction

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.

The Rubber Room

Enlightening and frustrating at the same time.
