Books we love


In anticipation of the annual Neiman Conference, a gathering of narrative journalists that took place this past weekend at Harvard University, the newspaper reporter's blog Gangrey ran a month of entries they called "Days to Neiman." In these posts, the authors highlighted writers and books that exemplified the narrative craft. Here are a few of the books:

American Stories by Calvin Trillin

The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup by Susan Orleans (see introduction)

The New New Journalism by Robert Boynton

Off Ramp by Hank Steuver (see preface)

Sports Guy by Charlie Pierce (see preface)

The Gay Talese Reader by Gay Talese (see "Origins of a Nonfiction Writer")
