For those still processing David Carr's sudden death, The New York Times scribe lives on in two great works he left behind, the 2011 documentary "Page One: Inside the New York Times" and Carr's memoir, "Night of the Gun."
There's no shortage, of course, of Carr's presence in the media, from today's top-of-the-fold print edition of the Times to his last tweets. But Carr, warts and all, is singularly the focus of these two works. He basically investigated himself for his memoir, including his time as a crack addict. And "Page One" started out as a documentary about the paper that came to focus, more and more, on this raspy-voiced sui generis reporter.
He was a badass.
