    1. I have always enjoyed longform journalism but often neglect to read random intriguing magazine articles because their completion doesn't come with the same sense of satisfaction entailed by finishing a book. I realize this is a ludicrous and nonsensical reason to curtail one's magazine reading but it is honestly an issue for me. Thankfully every year the fine people at the American Society of Magazine Editors are kind enough to cull together the best pieces in a volume that one can proudly add t [...]


    2. Like any avid reader I am the first to admit that I don't have time to read as many articles as I would like, which means that many of the best stories slip completely through my fingers. Lucky for us the "Best American Magazine Writing" series continues to gather the best of the best so that we can all take a moment at the end of the year to catch up on the mesmerizing stories we somehow missed.The beauty of magazine writing is that it has so much more space for creativity than straight news.

    3. (Full disclosure: I got this from Netgalley. Just so you know.)A collection of excellent articles from the last year or so, covering a wide variety of subjects, generally at a great amount of length and depth. Some particular highlights:- "Fear of a Black President": Ta-Nehisi Coates writes an excellent article on President Obama and race.- "The Innocent Man": A massive cautionary tale about a terrible, terrible failure of the justice system.- "18 Tigers, 17 Lions, 8 Bears, 3 Cougars, 2 Wolves, [...]


    4. Once again, this annual collection showcases the best of the best in longform journalism. Invigorating, astounding, and at times emotional. I'll add to this review later when I put together a rundown of my favorite articles - there's not a weak one in the bunch.


    5. This year's edition is one of the strongest I can remember. If pressed, I'd say my favorite pieces are Pamela Colloff on the ultimate exoneration of Michael Morson; Chris Heath on the Zanesville zoo escape; Michael Wolff on the harsh realities of elder care; and Brian Mockenhaupt on a soldier's survival story.


    6. I read this series each year, and this was one of the best with some fantastic articles. Highly recommend.
