Longreads has asked some of the year's most influential writers to select the best long-form pieces of journalism they've come across. As we head into a relatively quiet month of technology news and business, it's a good time to dig back into the archives for some high-quality content to last you through the rest of the month.
Looking at the selections so far, 'The Innocent Man' from Texas Monthly and 'The Lethal Presidency of Barack Obama' from Esquire both stand out as particularly memorable feats of writing and investigation. As for a piece that is more topical than ever, Wired's fascinating look at 'The Last Stand of John McAfee' is certainly worth renewed attention.
Adding one to the list that has yet to be covered, Matter's first article, 'Do Not Harm,' has certainly proven to be a journalistic highlight for me.
The series is available via the official Longreads Blog.
