Gwen's Take

I am frequently asked if I think journalism is doomed. I happen to think it’s not. We’ll always need to know more; we just may have to find new ways to learn and alternate platforms from which to tell the story.

In general, I side-step these periodic media debates, mostly because I’m not a professional media critic, but also because such circular arguments seldom lead anywhere.

Gwen reviews "The Bridge: The Life & Rise of Barack Obama"

Gwen's Take

When The Washington Post asked me to review David Remnick’s new book “The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama,” I quickly said yes.

As someone who spends my days trying to peer inside, through and around national and global events, I possess a bottomless well of curiosity about people who aspire to lead.

You will see in the review that follows that I admired Remnick’s final product, all 600+ pages of it. This is in part because I spent so much time (and sweat and tears) trying to write a far more narrowly focused book of my own in 2008.
