Incisive, compassionate, and revelatory reporting from America's death row, named a 2023 Pulitzer Prize finalist for feature writing. An Atlantic Edition, featuring long-form journalism by Atlantic writers, drawn from contemporary articles or classic storytelling from the magazine's 165-year archive.

Elizabeth Bruenig's sensitive reporting pulls back the curtain on a routine crisis in America's death chambers: state executioners' inability to kill the condemned humanely. She takes readers to the torturous final moments of death row inmates while considering the often heinous crimes that led to their sentences. Thoughtful and profound, Bruenig's writing negotiates the culture of violence in America, asking what's at stake when we refuse to see the humanity in those who have done the inhumane.
