In Literary Journalism we celebrate fifteen of our most dazzling writers as they work with great vitality and astonishing variety.

The fifteen essays gathered here include:
John McPhee's account of the battle between army engineers and the lower Mississippi River
Susan Orlean's brilliant portrait of the private, imaginative world of a ten-year-old boy
Tracy Kidder's moving description of life in a nursing home
Ted Conover's wild journey in an African truck convoy while investigating the spread of AIDS
Richard Preston's bright piece about two shy Russian mathematicians who live in Manhattan and search for order in a random universe
Joseph Mitchell's classic essay on the rivermen of Edgewater, NJ
And nine more fascinating pieces of the nation's best nonfiction writing.
