Harlot & Ma

12-3-6

 

Norman Kingsley Mailer (born January 31, 1923) is an American writer and, along with Truman Capote, is considered an innovator of Creative nonfiction.

 

 

Creative nonfiction is a genre of literature, also known as literary journalism and narrative journalism, which uses literary skills in the writing of nonfiction.

 

Bob Woodward of the Washington Post is also noted for his skills at narrative nonfiction

 

P. J. O’Rourke is a humorous nonfiction writer with political interests

 

John Angus McPhee is an author whose works reflect his oft-eclectic interests including oranges, Bill Bradley and Alaska.

 

Gay Talese wrote Frank Sinatra Has A Cold, one of the finest examples of journalistic nonfiction.

 

John Sack covered, among other battles, the one for Old Baldy

 

Tim O’Brien One attribute unique to O’Brien’s work is the blur between fiction and reality

 

It is not uncommon for many prominent creative nonfiction works to even be published directly, or be adaptations of one’s own work for industriously ethical publications like The New Yorker (for example, Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, or Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief).

 

Yo-Yo Ma (born October 7, 1955!) is a world-famous-French-born-Chinese-American-cellist.

 

His main performance instrument is a very fine Montagnana cello, “Petunia“, from Venice, made in 1733, which he once absentmindedly left in a taxi cab in New York.

 

He also owns a cello made by American luthier firm Moes & Moes, and has a carbon-fiber cello made by Boston firm Luis & Clark. [ha!]
