Gay Talese’s address book

I finally found four minutes and forty-six seconds to watch this film: Gay Talese’s Address Book. My favorite words: “I am a person who cares about the past as much as the future. I don’t think that it is ethical to erase the past.” I, too, don’t erase names from my address book.

Matt Thomas has also pointed his readers to a film about Gay Talese’s office. It requires three minutes and thirty-two seconds.

I enjoyed this video. It led me to a few other links including his famous piece on Frank Sinatra, which I also found to be an interesting read.

That’s a great piece. It’s generous of Esquire to make it available.
