Master Reporter Gay Talese Says 'Fair-Mindedness' is Key to Faith & Links 19th Century Italian Civil War to Today's Catholics [INTERVIEW 2]
Perhaps one of the most intricate and yet overlooked aspects of creating a story is setting the scene in a manner to coax readers in. A good book offers an array of colors, sights, sounds, and places set out like a painter's palet looking to create a Da Vinci on canvas. This style in itself is usually allocated to the thralls of great fictional works and classics that never fail to hold back development of a person, place, or thing. However, in the rarest of instances, someone will decide to escape from the constraints of the traditional, and step outside the box of what's expected. Gay Talese is that man, and he does it because of some divine inspiration.
The name Gay Talese is synonymous with the golden age of journalism, and a name that comes to mind when one thinks of the greatest writers to ever live. Talese has single-handedly penned some of the finest narrative journalism the world has ever seen, whether it be about stray cats in the 1950s, the life of true crime family gangsters, or the incredibly revealing “Frank Sinatra has a Cold.” The man who interview profiled everyone from Muhammad Ali to Pope Paul II never had the chance to interview Jesus Christ Himself, but BREATHEcast wanted to know just what the best of all time would look for in a story.
