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.
