Acclaimed journalist Conover sets a new standard for reporting when he applies for a job as a prison officer. So begins his odyssey at Sing Sing, once a model prison but now the New York State's most troubled maximum-security facility. The result of his year there is this remarkable look at one of America's most dangerous prisons, where drugs, gang wars, and sex are rampant, and where the line between violator and violated is often unclear. As sobering as it is suspenseful, Newjack is an indispensable contribution to the urgent debate about our country's criminal justice system, and a consistently fascinating read

True stories : a century of literary journalism by Norman Sims( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"True Stories details the cultural conditions, the competing journalistic forms, and the innovative writers that shaped literary journalism's destiny. The book examines the work of early practitioners, the difficulties encountered during the rise of journalistic objectivity, the burst of activity during the Great Depression, and the formation of a creative oasis at The New Yorker in the 1930s through the barren 1950s, as well as looking at the personal involvement of New Journalists during the 1960s. Sims uses extensive interviews with contemporary writers to argue we need literary journalism if we hope to achieve a nuanced and complex view of our world, one that captures diverse perspectives and achieves an accurate and artistic presentation of experience."--Jacket

The routes of man : how roads are changing the world and the way we live today by Ted Conover( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Pulitzer Prize finalist and National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Newjack, an absorbing book about roads and their power to change the world. Roads bind our world--metaphorically and literally--transforming landscapes and the lives of the people who inhabit them. Roads have unparalleled power to impact communities, unite worlds and sunder them, and reveal the hopes and fears of those who travel them. With his marvelous eye for detail and his contagious enthusiasm, Ted Conover explores six of these key byways worldwide. In Peru, he traces the journey of a load of rare mahogany over the Andes to its origin, an untracked part of the Amazon basin soon to be traversed by a new east-west route across South America. In East Africa, he visits truckers whose travels have been linked to the worldwide spread of AIDS. In the West Bank, he monitors highway checkpoints with Israeli soldiers and then passes through them with Palestinians, witnessing the injustices and danger borne by both sides. He shuffles down a frozen riverbed with teenagers escaping their Himalayan valley to see how a new road will affect the now-isolated Indian region of Ladakh. From the passenger seat of a new Hyundai piling up the miles, he describes the exuberant upsurge in car culture as highways proliferate across China. And from inside an ambulance, he offers an apocalyptic but precise vision of Lagos, Nigeria, where congestion and chaos on freeways signal the rise of the global megacity. A spirited, urgent book that reveals the costs and benefits of being connected--how, from ancient Rome to the present, roads have played a crucial role in human life, advancing civilization even as they set it back
