Gay Talese: Scrapbooker

Gay Talese is a legendary writer who works in a singular way. While tucked into his office—which is known to all as “the bunker,” and reached through a separate entrance below his family’s townhouse, on East 61st Street—Talese mixes journalism with arts and crafts. He initially composes his articles and books on long strips of paper that he strings above his desk, making a constellation of words.

Here, see a slideshow of the collages he made for this most recent “Talk of the Town” piece on a restaurant space hear his home.
