About the best of long-form journalism

Previous Entry the best of long-form journalism Apr. 27th, 2010 @ 01:42 pm Next Entry
Reading a feature-length article (several thousand words long) is one of the peculiar pleasures of life. Now there's a couple of websites that are devoted exclusively to finding the best works in this format and aggregating them. Thanks to Sullivan, I came across this Slate article about a pair of guys called Linsky and Lammer who have set up a website called longform.org. It seems to be jampacked with articles of great deliciousness. Equally useful is another site called givemesomethingtoread.com.

The World Wide Web - it's a beautiful thing.

P.S. The best magazine articles ever.

P.P.S. Conor F is also a longform junkie and has some very good links here. His favourite is John McPhee.

Re: great find!

No it's not... the site has a very limited collection. Just finished all 21 pages a few days ago... submitted some myself. But, yes, eventually this should be a big deal.

Great Site

This site has been a major boon - read through the pieces up to page 9. THANKS for providing the link. Someone did give me the link earlier, but that didn't stick.

NYT's 'Something's Got to Give' is JUST AMAZING.
