In the magazine world, no recognition is more highly coveted or prestigious than a National Magazine Award. Annually, members of the American Society of Magazine Editors, in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, select the year's most dynamic, original, provocative, and influential magazine stories. The winning and finalist pieces in this anthology represent outstanding work by some of the most eminent writers in America as well as rising literary and journalistic talents. This year's selection includes James Fallows's chilling investigation in the Atlantic Monthly of the damage the "War on Terror" has done to American interests abroad; Seymour M. Hersh's coverage in the New Yorker of the administration's preparation for a possible war against Iran; Susan Casey's revelation in Best Life of a virtually unknown, Texas-sized garbage dump resting at the bottom of the Pacific ocean; and Andrew Corsello's harrowing portrait in GQ of Robert Mugabe's mad rule and two men-a white farmer and a fiery black priest-who strive for forgiveness instead of hate. Nominations also include Vanessa Grigoriadis's hilarious portrait of fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld in New York Magazine; Todd Purdum's richly textured portrait of Dick Cheney in Vanity Fair; Fareed Zakaria's analysis of the failed U.S. policy in Iraq in Newsweek; and Christopher Hitchens's profiles of traumatized Ugandan children, survivors of Agent Orange, and the late interviewer Oriana Fallaci in Vanity Fair. Sandra Tsing Loh's book reviews in the Atlantic Monthly are also featured, along with fiction by Jhumpa Lahiri, (New Yorker), Stephen King (Playboy), and Margaret Atwood (Playboy and Zoetrope: All-Story).
