    Summary

    Occupy Wall Street was the biggest news story of 2011. Among those who followed the movement like a storm chaser, Boston Phoenix Staff Writer and veteran hip-hop and social justice journalist Chris Faraone is one of the few who blogged about daily Occupy minutiae, but also stepped back to smoke lots of weed, investigate and analyze the protest, and deliver weekly features.

    Starting in September, Faraone published a series of deep Occupy portraits, traveling to more than a dozen cities from Boston to Seattle. His work illustrates day-to-day Occupy operations, as well the characters who make the movement tick. In the process, he also landed nationwide exclusives, like a scoop on an underground legion of cops who support Occupy.

    Though Faraone is to the left of Ralph Nader, he writes with a reporter's eye, and over the course of Occupy aggravated readers of every imaginable political preference. For him it wasn't about taking sides; the fun was in digging up the roots of topics ranging from an accused thief who moved between camps, to a veteran anarchist who, inspired by Occupy, snapped back into revolutionary action.

    As was noted in a Columbia Journalism Review profile of Faraone, his approach to covering Occupy was wholly unique, as he became "a one-man swarm: embedding full-time at Boston's Dewey Square encampment; visiting other movements around the country; juggling feature stories, blog posts, radio spots, and Twitter fights."

    99 Nights with the 99 Percent is a collection of Faraone's published posts and articles on Occupy, streamlined into a sleek 222-page edition that also packs unpublished pieces and a number of bonus features. In addition to pics and illustrations, a series of haikus - "Occupaikus" - run throughout the book, taking readers through a timeline of the first 100 days of the movement.

    There are other books on Occupy, and by this time next year there will be countless tomes, apps, Occu-mentaries, and oral histories to choose from. But even then, 99 Nights will remain in a class of its own, as Faraone's story - and the way he tells it, packed with humor and emotion - is wholly unique.
