"Best Nonfiction of 2010"

May 24, 2011

Over at The Atlantic, a writer named Conor Friedersdorf put together a list of favorite journalism from 2010. We're proud that three of our stories made the cut:

* Ben Calhoun's story "Patriot Games" from This Party Sucks, about two guys in Michigan whose friendship is changed forever after they venture into politics.

* "Is That A Tape Recorder In Your Pocket Or Are You Just Happy To See Me," from Right To Remain Silent (based on a five part story in The Village Voice by Graham Rayman).

* And NUMMI, a full episode reported by NPR's Frank Langfitt, about a car plant that possibly could have saved the US auto industry - and why it didn't.

The list also includes a story by our friends over at Planet Money, plus a bunch of other great stories worth checking out.
