Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Best American Magazine Writing 2010 is the strongest evidence yet that the narrative and purpose of print journalism is as vital as ever, providing entertainment, connection, perspective, and unprecedented revelation in increasingly imaginative and engaging ways. This year's selections, chosen from among the finalists of the National Magazine Awards, include David Grann's much-discussed article on the legal execution of a possibly innocent man in the New Yorker; Shari Fink's report on alleged euthanization of patients during Hurricane Katrina in the New York Times Magazine; and John H. Richardson's widely read feature on America's last late-term-abortion doctor in Esquire.

The Best American Magazine Writing 2010 continues to thrill with its captivating profiles, absorbing personal essays, amusing encounters, and entrancing fiction. Jonathan Van Meter offers rare access to one of American literature's most enigmatic marriages in New York; Daphne Merkin recounts her harrowing experience with chronic depression in the New York Times Magazine; John Spong recalls a colorful night at a Texas dance hall in Texas Monthly; and Mitch Albom rediscovers the spirit of Detroit in its devotion to athletics in Sports Illustrated. James Stewart, Michael Lewis, Megan McArdle, and Bryan Burrough conducted stellar coverage of the year's unprecedented financial issues, and Michael Pollan and Atul Gawande contributed fascinating pieces on health habits and health care reform, respectively. Salman Rushdie, George Saunders, Sherman Alexie, and Anthony Doerr are among the nominated short story writers.

Synopsis:

The Best American Magazine Writing 2010 proves that print journalism is as vital as ever, offering information, amusement, connection, and perspective to those who love to lose themselves in a good read. This year's selections, chosen from National Magazine Awards finalists and winners, include David Grann's article from the New Yorker on the execution of a possibly innocent man; Sheri Fink's report from the New York Times Magazine on the alleged euthanization of patients during Hurricane Katrina; and Fareed Zakaria's compelling take from Newsweek on Iran's weakening regime.

The Best American Magazine Writing 2010 also includes absorbing profiles, arresting interviews, personal essays, and entrancing fiction. Esquire's Mike Sager recounts a promising quarterback's shocking descent into drugs; Vanity Fair's Bryan Burrough shares the confessions of the year's other major Ponzi schemer, and, from McSweeney's Quarterly, Wells Tower weaves a transporting tale of elemental desire. GQ's Tom Carson offers his critique of America's current vampire craze; Mitch Albom rediscovers Detroit's indomitable spirit in Sports Illustrated; and Garrison Keillor sings an ode to the homegrown joys of state fairs in National Geographic. Additional contributors include Atul Gawande, Megan McArdle, and many others commenting on a range of issues, from health care and the national debt to war movies and the controversy over circumcision. Altogether the writing collected here proves the rich pleasures waiting in the best magazines.
