The Best American Magazine Writing 2010is 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 2010continues 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.
