FSG Joins Longreads

There has been a lot of buzz about the rise in online “longform” reading, loosely defined as any article between 2,000 and 8,000 thousand words. Tablets like the iPad, services like Instapaper, and curators like Longreads have created a perfect storm of sorts: it’s now incredibly easy to find high-caliber stories for people who want something more substantive than a blog post.

As you’d expect, there are several great articles by FSG authors, and we’ve begun sharing them on our Longreads page. Also keep an eye out for our Twitter posts marked with the #longreads tag.

A few recent highlights: Michael Cunningham on translation, John Wray on Owen Pallett, and Judith Thurman on Amanda Beecroft.
