Gay Talese 
is the author of the highly acclaimed best seller Unto The Sons, a historical memoir that spanned two world wars and possessed what Norman Mailer called "the sweep and detail of a grand 19th-century novel." His other best selling books include The Kingdom and The Power, Honor Thy Father, Thy Neighbor's Wife, Fame and Obscurity, and The Bridge. He is a regular contributor to Esquire Magazine, where he was credited by Tom Wolfe with the creation of an inventive form of non-fiction writing called The New Journalism.     [extracted from 1997 brochure]
