True Crime Reporting So Intense You'll Swear It's Fiction. It's Not.

I'll be the first to admit that if I turn on the TV and see a Law and Order: Special Victims Unit marathon running my plans for the day go by the wayside; I'll sit down on my couch and never stop watching until the very last episode. Crime stories are fascinating, be they acted on television or in the movies or transcribed as the written word. The Best American Crime Reporting 2008 is a phenomenal collection that shows students what true crime reporting can and should be, with selections from such esteemed publications as Esquire, The Atlantic Monthly, and The New Yorker on everything from fraud to murder, theft to madness.
