Abstract:

"Throughout his 25-year journalistic career, David Carr was noted for his sharp and fearless observations, his uncanny sense of fairness and justice, and his remarkable compassion and wit. His writing was informed both by his own hardships as an addict, and his intense love of the journalists craft. His rangefrom media politics to national politics, from rock n roll celebrities to the unknown civil servants who make our daily lives functionwas broad and often timeless. Whether he was breaking exclusives about Amazon or mourning Philip Seymour Hoffmans death or taking aim at editors who valued political trivia over substance, Carrs voice and concerns remain enormously influential and relevant. In these hundred or so articles, from a range of publications, we read his stories with fresh eyes. Edited by his widow, Jill Rooney Carr, and with an introduction written by one of the many journalists David Carr mentored and promoted, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Final Draft is a singular event in the world of writing news, an art increasingly endangered in these troubled times."
