    memoir of an interviewer/reporter

    Discussion in 'Research' started by Stampingchimps, Feb 3, 2014.

    Rookie here. I am considering attempting to write a shortie narrated by an interviewer. specifically someone who is interviewing X in order to write a news column say in NYT. It would be MOST HELPFUL to read a book where such a reporter looks back at her experiences, how did s/he go about the whole process

    Thus I am looking for books to read that would help me in that, and probably a memoir of a columnist (who interviewed people) would be most helpful. The interviewee in my story is a common man.

    many thanks in advance

    Barbara Walters has at least a couple. Audition: A Memoir (2008) and How to Talk with Practically Anybody about Practically Anything (1970).
