en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – November 2016
From the inimitable New Yorker journalist Lillian Ross a collection of her most luminous New Yorker pieces (Entertainment Weekly, grade: A).
A staff writer for The New Yorker since 1945, Lillian Ross is one of the few journalists who worked for both the magazine s founding editor, Harold Ross, and its current editor, David Remnick. She made journalistic history by pioneering the kind of novelistic nonfiction that inspired later work (The New York Times).
Reporting Always is a collection of Ross s iconic New Yorker profiles and Talk of the Town pieces that spans forty years. This glorious collection by a master of the form (Susan Orlean) brings the reader into the hotel rooms of Ernest Hemingway, John Huston, and Charlie Chaplin; Robin Williams s living room and movie set; Harry Winston s office; the tennis court with John McEnroe; Ellen Barkin s New York City home, the crosstown bus with upper east side school children; and into the lives of other famous, and not so famous, individuals.
Millennials would do well to study Ross and to study her closely, says Lena Dunham. Whether reading for pleasure or to learn about the craft, Reporting Always is a joy for readers of all ages."

"Lillian Ross is a consummate reporter, and therefore remains on the fringes of these unforgettable pieces of writing. But there is no doubt about her place in the pantheon of radical and dogged female storytellers. Millennials would do well to study Ross and to study her closely: her style, her technique, and her legend.”
"For anyone interested in movies from the 50s on, Lillian Ross’s profiles were essential. They still are. And that was my way into her irreplaceable body of writing.”
"There is only one Lillian Ross: spirited, funny, factual, and unforgettable. Her fabulous writing never goes out of style."
"Lillian Ross is the model for all narrative journalists. Open-eyed, sharp-witted, and fundamentally kind-hearted, she has diamond-hard reporting skills and an effortlessly graceful way with words. Each story here shows her at her best, as keen storyteller and social observer, whether she is peering into the world of Hollywood swells or bumbling school kids or wherever else her curiosity takes her. This is a glorious collection by a master of the form."
“Exceptionally curious, exceedingly brave, with a perfect ear: through Lillian Ross and her classic reporting, we've gotten the chance to sneak into the private worlds of the great and the fascinating (Chaplin, Hemingway, Truffaut, Huston). One of the most important and influential journalists alive.”
Lillian Ross has elevated journalism--storytelling--to an art but it is her art, singular and brilliant. Her innate sense of form and eye for the telling, often humorous detail, are part of what makes her work so indelible and influential--that and her understanding of how the family of man becomes just that.
"An anthology of New Yorker stories form a living bridge to journalism's golden age...Readable and rewarding and...full of exemplary reporting."
With the publication of “Reporting Always: Writings from The New Yorker,” with a forward by The New Yorker’s editor, David Remnick, we have the opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with the work of Ms. Ross — and to make new discoveries. For me, without doubt, the best of these discoveries is her droll and deadpan profile of the larger-than-life Brooklynite Sidney Franklin, titled “El Unico Matador.” (Not incidentally, this was Ross’s first New Yorker profile that appeared under her own byline.)
