The Sunday Long Read (with Stephanie Clifford)

Happy Sunday and happy early Thanksgiving! There will be no newsletter next Sunday—except for our supporting members, who should look out for another bonus edition. Our membership community, which keeps the SLR going (and ad-free!) despite various rising costs, receives our newsletter up to two hours early each Sunday and gets several bonus versions throughout the year. You can learn more about the program and join us here.Thanks—as always—for helping us spread great work! As for that work…

This week’s guest editor, Stephanie Clifford, is an award-winning journalist and bestselling novelist. She writes about criminal justice and business for The New York Times, The New Yorker, Wired, Marie Claire and other publications. Her latest stories are for the Times, on how prosecutors are getting out of paying for wrongful convictions; Marker, on what it’s really like to become an overnight millionaire; and Wired, about how girls in small-town Belmont, New Hampshire, fought back against a cyberstalker. As a New York Times reporter for almost a decade, she covered courts, business, and media and won the Loeb award for investigative reporting. Everybody Rise, her first novel, was a New York Times bestseller and New York Times Book Review editor’s choice, with movie rights optioned by Fox 2000. She is at work on her second novel, set in Washington State, where she grew up. And now, here’s her spin on the SLR!
