The Gay Talese Reader

Whether he is detailing the unseen and sometimes quirky world of New York City ("New York City Is a City of Things Unnoticed") or profiling Diana Vreeland in "Vogueland" or Joe DiMaggio in "The Silent Season of a Hero," Talese captures his subjects--be they famous, infamous, or merely unusual--in his own inimitable, elegant fashion. The individual profiles and encounters in this volume are works of art, each carefully crafted to create a portrait of an unforgettable personality, place, or moment.
