Labash Work Among Best American Essays

The Weekly Standard/Daily Caller‘s Matt Labash has a story that will be among this year’s Best American Essays. His story is ‘A Rake’s Progress’ published in The Weekly Standard in September 2009.

The piece is a profile on former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry. The subhead: “Marion Barry bares (almost) all.”

An excerpt:

“Mr. Barry wants to start early,” Natalie informs. “He wants you to come to church with him tomorrow.” “Great,” I say. “What time does church start?”"Eleven A.M.,” she says. “Okay. And what time should I meet him before church?” I ask.”Eleven-thirty,” she responds with complete seriousness.

Labash joins the ranks of other authors whose stories made the list: David Sedaris and Ian McEwan (to name a few).
