This is a collection of Gay Talese's pieces featuring the ""new journalism""-i. e, mobile, imaginative and very live with on-the-spot exchanges. Let it be noted however that while some of them are recent (via Esquire or other publications) others, in the closing sections, include an inset on the building of the Verrazano-Narrows bridge which appeared as a book-The Overreachers.

Although I have no desire to read Gay Talese's most recent book, this collection of essay is a classic. His prose swept me back to the Sixties, my teen years, and the city of New York, two hours from the rural Connecticut town where I grew up. People, the time, the place, the bridge. And craft - details and threads planted along the way then pulled together at the end of each essay - is masterful!

The best writer of non-fiction ever. His perspective is matchless.

A taste of New York at the midpoint of the last century. Very refreshing!

Non fiction literature is a USA product, at the most it comes fron the anglosaxon culture. That is why we can say that Gay Talese is The non fiction writer par excellence. The best there is. Yes, there might be better known non fiction writers "names", but no one has a cleaner, precise more efficient prose than Gay Talese. By far he is the best. If one pay attention to the structure and the language of his works you unerstand at least three things: in literature the theme IS NOT the most important part, also we can understand how non fiction most be written and the importance that these fourth genre has nowadays. Pure fiction works seems to be declining in front of non fiction. Except storys out of these world (Avatar, Harry Potter, et al). Maybe we have had enough fiction, after all real life has proven that the best storys are next door and the best characters are walking in the neighbourhood. Gay Talese's works are an impeccable argument. Yes, there is also Mailer, Wolfe, Krakauer, Didion...

The best piece of journalist I ever saw. From the first to the last page this book has a flowing narrative that is enjoyable and addictive at the same time. The way he depicts the characters (all real) and gathers all information in its minimal details has no parallel.
I say 4 stars only because of the datedness of some of the material. But the pieces on Frank Sinatra and Joe DiMaggio in this book (both written in 1966) are brilliant and incisive portrayals of a time and states of mind (and of icons in an age when celebrity was in some ways larger than life than it is today and in some ways refreshingly not) that are both long gone.
