America's Best Newspaper Writing by Roy Peter Clark , Christopher Scanlan
This is a great anthology for anyone teaching (or learning) journalism or even expository writing. Many of the big names in modern journalism are represented: Rick Bragg, Mitch Albom, Patricia Raybon, Francis X. Clines, Thomas French, William Blundell, Cynthia Gorney, Diane Griego Erwin. But there is also a section of "classics," and a first-person account by Marvel Cooke of her day "undercover" as a domestic worker in 1950 is a particularly powerful piece of writing.
