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. In regards to the magazine's natural progression, Remnick talks about his main job of getting the magazine from one side of the tech era to the other, with its soul intact. For Treisman, the directive is simple – to publish the best writing possible.
