Synopsis: The collected articles and columns of Michael Kelly, award-winning reporter, war correspondent, columnist, and editor, whose passion for the good story and whose candor and wit made him one of the foremost journalists of our time.

His career reflected myriad colors: he wrote for a large variety of publications, covering a multitude of topics-political, international, and personal-with singular insight, passion, and wit. This collection of his most memorable magazine and newspaper stories and columns-drawn from the Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, The New Republic, and other publications-puts on full display the dazzling panoply of his gifts: for physical description and scene setting; for telling detail, brilliant simile, and satirical insight; for prose that is at once mathematically precise and lyrical.

Here are the searing portraits of Ted Kennedy, Jesse Jackson, H. Ross Perot, and other seminal political figures of our time that won Kelly national attention. Here are the stunning dispatches from the first Gulf War that earned him the National Magazine Award for reporting and burnished his journalistic legend. Here are the fierce columns and landmark cover stories that raised disturbing questions about Bill Clinton, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the deeply incestuous relationship between Washington, D.C.'s political and media cultures. And here are the loving family portraits and hilarious social commentaries.

Things Worth Fighting For represents the body of work of a journalist who demonstrated time and again a surpassing talent for penetrating to the heart of the matter, for advancing far beyond the headlines and surface appearances of people and events to find their true meanings, for getting the story other writers missed and telling it with a verve few other writers could match.

About the Author: Michael Kelly's remarkably varied career ranged from war correspondent to presidential campaign reporter to syndicated columnist to editor of three magazines (most recently the award-winning Atlantic Monthly). Publications he wrote for included the New York Times, The New Yorker, GQ, and Baltimore Sun. His coverage of the Gulf War won a National Magazine Award and an Overseas Press Award, and his 1992 book, Martyrs' Day: Chronicle of a Small War, won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award. While covering the Iraq war as editor at large of the Atlantic Monthly and a columnist for the Washington Post, he was killed on April 4, 2003, when the humvee he was riding in came under fire. He is survived by his wife and two sons.
