The Sunday Long Read Best of 2016: The Complete Collection

Welcome to power reader paradise! What follows is a complete list of the 152 stories that were either (a) one of our Favorite Reads of the Week, (b) the most clicked story of the week, or (c) Jack Shafer’s Classic Read of the Week. They are currently sorted chronologically by e-mail date, but we hope you will sort and search to your heart’s delight. All of the stories have been tagged by genre so you can jump straight to sports stories, or politics, or, maybe more likely, not politics (using the small filter and sort icons above the list of stories). You could also view the collection sorted by publication. When a story piques your interest, just click on the article name and then tap the link to open it or scroll down to read our original writeup.
