Product description


"Wit, style, empathy, tough questions--it's all here, in this collection by the one-man journalism school that was David Carr. Lovingly curated by his wife, Final Draft allows us to read decades of David's best reportage about corruption, racism, celebrity, addiction, disease, and his love for his family, his skills only outdone by his humanity. God, I miss him."

-- "Jake Tapper, CNN"
