Publishers Weekly, 2007-10-29 All of the essays in the series' eighth year exhibit a timeless prose in the midst of meeting deadlines. But many also resonate with a special sense of timeliness, such as the insightful "Rules of Engagement" by William Langewiesche, a detailed study for Vanity Fair of the U.S. massacre of Iraqi citizens in the town of Haditha. Other essays have a similar sense of urgency: "Inside Scientology" by Janet Reitman for Rolling Stone-the result of a nine-month investigation-is a terrific and balanced look at an organization whose top leaders assert that false ideas, "including the concepts of God, Christ, and organized religion," date back 75 million years to the work of "an evil galactic warrior named Xenu." C.J. Chivers's "The School" for Esquire is a harrowing account of the three-day siege by Chechen terrorists of a grammar school in the Russian town of Beslan. Other, lighter pieces include Vanessa Grigoriadis's skillful depiction for New York of the crazy-like-a-fox business and personal lifestyle of "Karl Lagerfeld, Boy Prince of Fashion."

Publishers Weekly, 2006-10-16 The best magazine articles, writes Carter (editor of Vanity Fair), offer a winning combination of access into a new world, disclosure into its secrets and a narrative that transforms information into a compelling story. It's a standard most of these finalists for the American Society of Magazine Editors' annual awards meet with ease. The most sprawling example is David Foster Wallace's profile of talk radio personality John Ziegler (loaded with Wallace's trademark footnotes), but there are also little gems, like Field & Stream columnist Bill Heavey's account of teaching his young daughter to fish. The late Marjorie Williams is represented by her prize-winning essay about learning that she had an inoperable form of liver cancer; other winners include James Banford's reporting about the image consultant who handled the Iraqi invasion for the U.S. government, Elizabeth Kolbert's investigations into global warming and a short story from Joyce Carol Oates. For many readers, though, it's the profiles and feature stories that may hold the most interest, from the prose portrait of Merle Haggard as "The Last Outlaw" to John Jeremiah Sullivan's relating his misadventures at a Christian rock festival. If this anthology were a magazine, everybody would want to subscribe. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
