Next Wave collects the work of today’s finest young writers—nineteen creative reporters whose work builds upon foundations laid by previous generations. Although naysayers predicted the decline of quality long-form journalism with the rise of the Internet, Next Wave is evidence that the genre is thriving—aided by the very medium that was initially portrayed as the executioner.
