Conor Friedersdorf has curated a collection of the 101 best non-fiction stories for 2011.
Each year, I keep a running list of the most exceptional nonfiction that I encounter while publishing my twice-weekly newsletter The Best of Journalism. Along with my curating work for Byliner, this hoovering of great stories affords me the opportunity to read as many impressive narratives as any single person possibly can. The annual result is my Best of Journalism List, now in its fourth year. I could not, of course, read every worthy piece published during the year. But everything that follows deserves wider attention.
So if you’re looking for something to send to your Kindle, sign up for a free Readability account and get cracking, there are some gems in there!
