Gaby Wood meets David Remnick, the New Yorker's big-brained editor
It's a magazine that runs 10,000-word articles on African states and the pension system, has almost no pictures and is published in black and white. So how does the New Yorker sell more than a million copies a week? Gaby Wood meets David Remnick, its big-brained editor, and talks speed writing, 30-hour days and meeting Little Ant and Little Dec.

What's selling in sport

At least gloomy Arsenal fans have something to celebrate in über -fan Nick Hornby's continuing domination of sport-lit. This week saw them outnumbered at a rowdy public meeting to debate the wisdom of allowing the construction of a new stadium at Highbury. Inexplicably, residents are less impressed by the prospect of a swanky 60,000 capacity ground than they are unnerved by plans for a council dump to be relocated to within a few feet of houses and schools, and even an eloquent speech from sports journalist Amy Lawrence failed to pacify them. Perhaps Hornby should consider a postscript in future editions of the book. Elsewhere, seasonal adjustments account for the density of cricketing titles. But Muhammad Ali, subject of David Remnick's King of the World, is perennially fascinating - even for the editor of the New Yorker, a magazine not hitherto readily associated with pugilism.
