Best Newspaper Writing 2002

by Keith Woods

Best Newspaper Writing 2002 celebrates the winners of the ASNE Distinguished Writing Awards, including the Jesse Laventhol Prizes honoring deadline reporting. N.R. Kleinfeld of the New York Times reconstructed the morning of Sept. 11 with stories and stunning details. Jim Dwyer's short stories in the New York Times, resurrected from the smallest pieces of Sept. 11 debris, accomplish a feat that Dwyer himself describes in one of his poignant stories. The Wall Street Journal staff, amid a cloud of personal grief and national uncertainty, produced stories so stirring, encompassing, and complete that they remained relevant and vibrant long after Sept. 11. John McCormick, an editorial writer for the Chicago Tribune, displays amazing range -- from the contradictions of praying for peace amid war in Afghanistan, to a tribute to a murdered Chicago cop. Steve Lopez's storytelling always surprises, whether he's chronicling the unfolding tragedy of Sept. 11, or knocking back a six-pack of beer and a dozen doughnuts in the name of journalistic inquiry. Anne Hull of the Washington Post explores the gentrification of a neighborhood and the aftershocks of Sept. 11. Ellen Barry of the Boston Globe writes of the "Lost Boys" of Sudan, and their odyssey from African cattle herders to urban teens. J. Albert Diaz of the Miami, Herald captures the elusive concept of the American Dream.

Best Nurse in Missouri

by Mary Curtis Bowers

True, the title of "best nurse in Missouri" had been given to Erin Sullivan as a joke. But she was a dedicated professional who took excellent care of all her patients, even Joshua Cade, whom she hated with a passion. Joshua was handsome, wealthy, and ambitious--and Erin would never forgive him for what he'd done to her family. Never in a million years. Yet now that Joshua was in the hospital, Erin got to know him as she'd never known him before, and she found herself drawn to him. Why couldn't she be attracted to Dr. Brent Morgan, who adored her? How could she possibly want the one man in the world who had ruthlessly deprived her mother of her home?

The Best of All

by Vanessa Miller

The best is worth waiting for... Surry McDaniel loves designing beautiful clothes. In fact, it's the only thing she truly loves. Clothes can never fail her, the way people can. But when she's accused of stealing designs, Surry risks losing the life she's spent years building. The only person who can help is Ian Duncan, a political strategist who knows how to fix bad PR and who hasn't been able to stop thinking about Surry since they met. But Surry has kept him-and everyone else-at arm's length as long as they've known each other. Helping her would be a risk, but the more Ian gets to know Surry, the more he knows that while she needs him, he needs her even more.

The Best of All Possible Worlds

by Karen Lord

Karen Lord's debut novel, the multiple-award-winning Redemption in Indigo, announced the appearance of a major new talent--a strong, brilliantly innovative voice fusing Caribbean storytelling traditions and speculative fiction with subversive wit and incisive intellect. Compared by critics to such heavyweights as Nalo Hopkinson, China Miéville, and Ursula K. Le Guin, Lord does indeed belong in such select company--yet, like them, she boldly blazes her own trail. Now Lord returns with a second novel that exceeds the promise of her first. The Best of All Possible Worlds is a stunning science fiction epic that is also a beautifully wrought, deeply moving love story. A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked act of aggression, and the survivors have no choice but to reach out to the indigenous humanoids of their adopted world, to whom they are distantly related. They wish to preserve their cherished way of life but come to discover that in order to preserve their culture, they may have to change it forever. Now a man and a woman from these two clashing societies must work together to save this vanishing race--and end up uncovering ancient mysteries with far-reaching ramifications. As their mission hangs in the balance, this unlikely team--one cool and cerebral, the other fiery and impulsive--just may find in each other their own destinies . . . and a force that transcends all. "This fascinating and thoughtful science fiction novel breaks out of the typical conflict-centered narrative paradigm to examine adaptation, social change, and human relationships. I've not read anything quite like it, which makes it that rare beast: a true original."--Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series and the Spiritwalker TrilogyFrom the Hardcover edition.
