Does anyone have a piece of longform journalism that really stuck with you for a long time after you read it, particularly for being a well-written narrative as opposed to something shocking?

I'm looking for examples of really good non-book-length nonfiction storytelling.



What a great question!

I found "Bad Blood" by John Carreyrou about the Theranos saga incredibly engaging (at times shocking in that "they really did that? holy shit!" way), but also really well-written, meticulously researched and easy to follow.

Before he turned it into a book, Carreyrou originally broke the Theranos story in a series of articles for the WSJ which I haven't read, but which I suspect are similarly excellent.
