📒The Voyeur S Motel ✍ Gay Talese
✏The Voyeur s Motel Book Summary : On January 7, 1980, in the run-up to the publication of his landmark bestseller Thy Neighbor’s Wife, Gay Talese received an anonymous letter from a man in Colorado. “Since learning of your long awaited study of coast-to-coast sex in America,” the letter began, “I feel I have important information that I could contribute to its contents or to contents of a future book.” The man went on to tell Talese an astonishing secret, that he had bought a motel to satisfy his voyeuristic desires. He had built an attic “observation platform,” fitted with vents, through which he could peer down on his unwitting guests. Unsure what to make of this confession, Talese traveled to Colorado where he met the man—Gerald Foos—verified his story in person, and read some of his extensive journals, a secret record of America’s changing social and sexual mores. But because Foos insisted on remaining anonymous, Talese filed his reporting away, assuming the story would remain untold. Now, after thirty-five years, he’s ready to go public and Talese can finally tell his story. The Voyeur’s Motel is an extraordinary work of narrative journalism, at once a portrait of one complicated man, and an examination of secret lives and shifting mores in a culturally-evolving country.

📒Interrogating Ethnography ✍ Steven Lubet
✏Interrogating Ethnography Book Summary : In this comprehensive review of urban ethnography, Steven Lubet encountered a field that relies heavily on anonymous sources, often as reported by a single investigator whose underlying data remain unseen. Upon digging into the details, he discovered too many ethnographic assertions that weredubious, exaggerated, tendentious, or just plain wrong. Employing the tools and techniques of a trial lawyer, Lubet uses original sources and contemporaneous documentation to explore the stories behind ethnographic narratives. Many turn out to be accurate, but others are revealed to be based onrumors, folklore, and unreliable hearsay. Interrogating Ethnography explains how qualitative social science would benefit from greater attention to the quality of evidence, and provides recommendations for bringing the field more closely in line with other fact-based disciplines such as law and journalism.
📒High Notes ✍ Gay Talese
✏High Notes Book Summary : A superb new collection from the illustrious career of Gay Talese, "the most important nonfiction writer of his generation" (David Halberstam). Admired by generations of reporters, Gay Talese has for more than six decades enriched American journalism with an unmatched ability to inhabit the worlds of his subjects. From the long-form Esquire articles that germinated into his masterful books--including Honor Thy Father and Thy Neighbor's Wife--to indelible portraits like the canonical "Frank Sinatra Has a Cold" and the recent, revealing account of avant-pop star Lady Gaga's studio session with the old-school crooner Tony Bennett, the pieces collected in High Notes are classics of the journalistic style Talese pioneered--"the art of hanging out," as he called it--and a bold testament to his enduring talent for unparalleled cultural observation and impeccable literary craftsmanship.
📒The All American Industrial Motel ✍ Doug Crandell
✏The All American Industrial Motel Book Summary : This volatile memoir from Doug Crandell weaves a darkly comic and thoroughly heartbreaking coming-of-age tale set in 1990 as the author is about to graduate from college. With very few job prospects and in need of tuition money, he joins his father working at a ceiling tile factory in tiny Lagro, Indiana. As his father moves headlong into a midlife crisis--complete with a bad toupee and a penchant for drinking on the job--Crandell's mother struggles with depression and talks in the third person as she manages a fast-food joint, where she compels her crew to dress in homemade costumes. As the author struggles to finish his degree, he also fights the urge to stay where he is and end up a "lifer" like his father. But before long, the monotonous work takes its toll on Crandell, making him realize just how similar he and his dad are. From their joint substance abuse to their feelings about the coworkers they watch buried from asbestosis, the Crandell men struggle to find a way to communicate. This powerful book explores themes of modern manhood, hope, and the power of labor to bring together workers, families, and even macho men.
📒Screening Torture ✍ Michael Flynn
✏Screening Torture Book Summary : Before 9/11, films addressing torture outside of the horror/slasher genre depicted the practice in a variety of forms. In most cases, torture was cast as the act of a desperate and depraved individual, and the viewer was more likely to identify with the victim rather than the torturer. Since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, scenes of brutality and torture in mainstream comedies, dramatic narratives, and action films appear for little other reason than to titillate and delight. In these films, torture is devoid of any redeeming qualities, represented as an exercise in brutal senselessness carried out by authoritarian regimes and institutions. This volume follows the shift in the representation of torture over the past decade, specifically in documentary, action, and political films. It traces and compares the development of this trend in films from the United States, Europe, China, Latin America, South Africa, and the Middle East. Featuring essays by sociologists, psychologists, historians, journalists, and specialists in film and cultural studies, the collection approaches the representation of torture in film and television from multiple angles and disciplines, connecting its aesthetics and practices to the dynamic of state terror and political domination.
📒Sex And Journalism ✍ Sue Joseph
✏Sex and Journalism Book Summary : Paradoxically, while sex is everywhere in the media (sex sells!) the research into the coverage of sexuality by journalists is seriously marginalised in the academy. Look for texts on journalism's representation of love-making (in all its many manifestations) or a definition of 'sex journalism' and you will find very little. The opening section of Sex & Journalism: Critical, Global Perspectives provides two important overviews by Belinda Middleweek and Matthew Ricketson.The second section carries case studies by an international group of distinguished journalists-turned-academics. Subjects include:*reporters who dare to appropriate normally pejorative terms such as 'slut' and 'sex object' to promote progressive notions about gender and sexuality; *the ethics and methods in Gay Talese's The Voyeur's Motel; *a group of prostitutes in Mexico who turned to journalism to tell their unique stories; *sex crimes, cover-ups and conspiracy theories;*the coverage of homosexuality in 1980s Portugal; *and how a television investigation disrupted consent laws in New South Wales, Australia. Contributors include Kylie Cardell and Emma Maguire, Todd Schack, Claire Konkes, Julie Wheelwright, Antonio Castillo, Manuel Coutinho and Anna Hoyles. The editors are Sue Joseph, Senior Lecturer, University of Technology Sydney, and Richard Lance Keeble, Professor of Journalism at the University of Lincoln and Honorary Professor at Liverpool Hope University.
