Summary, etc.:
At a time when the free press is under threat, Obit. takes a rare look inside one of the United States' foremost journalistic institutions, The New York Times. The steadfast writers of the paper's Obituaries section approach their work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair, each day depositing the details of a handful of extraordinary lives into the cultural memory. Going beyond the byline and into the minds of those chronicling the recently decesaed, OBIT is ultimately a celebration of life that conveys the central role journalism plays in capturing and reporting vital pieces of our history.
