"This book is a delight for the general reader as well as an excellent resource for undergraduate or graduate students of journalism. It represents many of the finest nonfiction writers of the past several decades. There are many treasures here--and some real surprises. This is compelling stuff, wide ranging and beautifully balanced."--Evan Cornog, School of Journalism, Columbia University
"The range, care, and thoughtfulness with which this volume has been edited is hugely impressive. It is an extraordinary work whose greatest strength lies in the selections themselves. It will be exceptionally useful as a supplemental text for undergraduate instruction and is very likely to find a receptive audience among the public as well."--David Abrahamson, Medill School of Journalism, Northwestern University

"[An] eclectic collection of more than four dozen pieces of literary journalism ... the end product is a volume meant for browsing rather than reading--not necessarily a bad thing. Far from it, with contributors as distinguished as Victor Navasky, Geoffrey Wolff, Harrison Salisbury, and Francine du Plessix Gray, not to mention McPhee himself."--Publisher's Weekly "This is a significant collection of first-rate factual writing, and a valuable contribution to the literary scene."--The Virginia Quarterly
