Culture Lust by Angela Carone

Legendary Writer Gay Talese on These Days Tomorrow!

I'm so excited - it will be one of those restless nights for me.  It happens when I get really excited about a guest.  I've been reading more of his writing and about his life for the last 24 hours.  You don't want to miss this interview.  We'll talk about the state of journalism, past and present.  We'll talk about Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, Talese's famous 1966 Esquire article, heralded as the beginning of New Journalism.  We'll also talk about sports writing, and his profiles of Joe DiMaggio and Floyd Patterson.  His book The Kingdom and the Power , about The New York Times, will likely come up often.  All in all, it should be a conversation full of colorful stories and sage reflection.

Tune in tomorrow at 10am to These Days .
