Susan B. Glasser is currently a staff writer at The New Yorker, where she writes a weekly column on life in Trump’s Washington. Prior to her joining The New Yorker, Glasser served as the top editor of several Washington publications. Most recently, she founded the award-winning Politico Magazine and went on to become the editor of Politico throughout the 2016 election cycle. She previously served as the editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy, which won three National Magazine Awards, among other honors, during her tenure.

Before that, she worked for a decade at the Washington Post, where she was the editor of Outlook and national news. She also oversaw coverage of the impeachment of Bill Clinton, served as a reporter covering the intersection of money and politics, spent four years as the Post’s Moscow co-bureau chief, and covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She edited Roll Call, a Capitol Hill newspaper, early in her career.

She is the author of “Kremlin Rising: Vladimir Putin’s Russia and the End of Revolution,” which she co-wrote with her husband, Peter Baker. She will publish a biography of former Secretary of State James Baker, written with her husband, in 2020.

A graduate of Harvard University, Glasser lives in Washington with Baker and their son. She serves on the boards of the Pew Research Center and the Harvard Crimson student newspaper and is a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution.
