David Remnick and Deborah Treisman, editor and fiction editor, take us through the fiction at the New Yorker. They discuss the selection process, how the magazine has shaped fiction, as well as how it's been shaped by the fiction being read and created in the wider, diverse world.

For Treisman, the directive is simple – to publish the best writing possible.
