by Evan Ratliff and Susan Orlean


Overview -

Since its inception, The Atavist Magazine has been a pioneer of today's longform journalism renaissance.

What unifies these nonfiction masterpieces is the keen eye with which their writers capture the details of human experience, and their knack for hooking us into a story and never letting go.
