"The Truth About Cops and Dogs," by Rebecca Skloot, describes a vicious pack of wild dogs, preying on the domesticated pets of Manhattan. Monica Wojcik's "The w00t Files," for the chic geek crowd, comes directly from John McPhee's famous Literature of Fact workshop at Princeton, a launching pad for famous young writers. Daniel Nestor, of "McSweeney's" and "Bookslut," explains James Frey, while the very overweight Michael Rosenwald becomes a "Popular Science" nearly nude centerfold in a quest for knowledge about high-tech diagnostics.
