Description
Even though obituaries for the newspaper industry are being written every day, opinion writing is finding new life online as never before, perpetuating a tradition of classic newspaper writing that combines the immediacy of news with the precision of poetry. Following the success of the first Deadline Artists collection, this "most addictive journalism book ever" (American Journalism Review) sees some of America's greatest journalists take on the stories of scandal, tragedy, triumph, and tribute that have defined the spirit of their respective ages. This is history written in the present tense: walk with Jack London in the aftermath of the San Francisco earthquake or grieve over the assassination of Abraham Lincoln with Walt Whitman. Watch as Watergate unfolds, sex scandals explode, the Twin Towers fall, and winning home runs capture a comeback World Series victory, with such contributors as H.L. Mencken, Dorothy Thompson, Richard Wright, Damon Runyon, Shirley Povich, Murray Kempton, Mike Ryoko, Ruben Salazar, Mary McGrory, Mike Barnicle, Molly Ivins, Pete Hamill, Carl Hiaasen, Nicholas Kristof, Leonard Pitts, Steve Lopez, Peggy Noonan, and Mitch Albom.
