"Extraordinary stories of crime, passion, and adventure from The Atavist magazine, the trailblazing leader in longform narrative writing. Since its founding in 2011, The Atavist has garnered an unprecedented eight National Magazine Award nominations and was the first all-digital publication to win in feature writing. This collection presents the finest examples of a new kind of nonfiction storytelling as practiced by a young generation of longform experts. The collection includes Leslie Jamison's landmark portrait of a lonely whale named "52 Blue," Matthew Shaer's harrowing account of a shipwreck during Hurricane Sandy, and James Verini's prize-winning tale of romance and courage in Afghanistan. The fascinating and original writing in Love and Ruin demonstrates why The Atavist has become the leader in publishing "remarkable . . . can't look away pieces of multimedia journalism" (New York Times)" -- Provided by publisher.
