"An earlier version of this post misquoted Mr. Remnick on his comparison between the book [“The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama"] 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 NYT's "Arts Beat."
