The stories we tell : classic true tales by America's greatest women journalists( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Stories We Tell celebrates the work of twenty women who have made major contributions to the cannon of American magazine writing. While each has her own style, the women in these pages share the attributes of all good writers: meticulous research and reporting, attention to detail, a talent for choosing the perfect word. Above all, they are astute observers and sticklers for accuracy. Over the years, they have been both prolific and versatile, writing about a wide range of topics, including Joan Didion's landmark story about a suburban California woman convicted of burning her husband to death in their family Volkswagen, Susan Orlean's profile of a female bullfighter, Lillian Ross's stylish Talk of the Town pieces, Janet Malcolm's profile of the brilliant young pianist Yuja Wang, Gloria Steinem's memorable piece about Jackie Kennedy after the death of her husband, President John F. Kennedy, and Robin Marantz Henig's poignant account of the determination of one Alzheimer's victim to end her life on her own terms."--Back cover
