Gay Talese’s hat

GayTaleseHatThis is (a posterized photo of) the iconic “new journalism” writer Gay Talese’s hat. I took it almost exactly a year ago when I met with him at his home in NYC. (See What to Wear When Meeting with Gay Talese.) He had just come back from a very important trip, along with a documentary filmmaker (whom I met that day as well), which will prove to be momentous in the next year or so. You’ll see. I’m working this story (after just reading his new book — and all of them in fact, except the Mafia one and an elusive one that’s out of print titled New York: A Serendipiter’s Journey). Stay with me on this . . .
