Summary
Great newspaper writing combines the urgency of news with the precision of poetry. It is history written in the present tense, and a new generation deserves access to the best of the past. Following the breakout success of the first compilation, in this fresh Deadline Artists collection, America's greatest journalists take on the stories of scandal, tragedy, triumph, and tribute that have defined the spirit of their age. Walk with Jack London in the aftermath of the San Francisco earthquake, or grieve over the assassination of Abraham Lincoln while the blood still dries at Ford's Theater. Watch as Watergate unfolds, sex scandals explode, the Twin Towers implode, and winning home runs capture the thrill of a comeback capped with a World Series victory.--From publisher description
