Deadline Artists

America's Greatest Newspaper Columns


Edited by John Avlon, Jesse Angelo and Errol Louis


Deadline Artists is the forthcoming book that brings together the greatest newspaper articles of our time. America's story has always been best told in its newspapers. From the local and mundane-crime blotters, crop prices, and Sunday sermons-to the Federalist Papers and Watergate, the press has played an outsized role in our nation's culture and history. Newspapers in America have always been the crucible where our passions and debates are tried by the only judge this nation respects: public opinion. At a time of great transition in the news media, Deadline Artists celebrates the relevance of the newspaper column through the simple power of excellent writing. It is an inspiration for a new generation of writers--whether their medium is print or digital-looking to learn from the best of their predecessors.

Deadline Artists will be released by Overlook Press on September 15th, 2011. Pre-order the book on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Please check back here for more details. This will be the official website for the book.
