Monday's New Yorker will present a "20 Under 40" list of important young fiction writers, as selected by the magazine. The New York Times gets editor David Remnick's take on this version of the infrequently published list:

"If they had too much in common, it would be really boring," he said in an interview.
Among the 20 names on the list:
Nicole Krauss, 35; Jonathan Safran Foer, 33
