  1. The Snowden Saga: A Shadowland of Secrets and Light
    Whether hero or traitor, former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden is the most important whistle-blower of modern times, one whose disclosures will reverberate for decades to come. With extensive input from Snowden himself, Suzanna Andrews, Bryan Burrough, and Sarah Ellison have the spy-novel-worthy tale of how a geeky dropout from the Maryland suburbs found himself alone and terrified in a Hong Kong hotel room, spilling America's most carefully guarded secrets to the world.

  3. Edward Snowden's Long, Strange Journey to Hollywood
    Oliver Stone wanted a hit -- and the chance to put America’s most iconic dissident onscreen. The subject wanted veto power. The Russian lawyer wanted someone to option the novel he'd written. The American lawyer just wanted the whole insane project to go away. Somehow a film got made.
