Description
 
Great journalists, at one time or another, have all been characters in their own stories: people with personalities that shaped what they saw and reported, and were touched and changed by the experiences about which they wrote; and innovators who borrowed the storytelling techniques of fiction. "The Beholder's Eye" showcases the very best of an increasing trend toward personal narrative: Mike Sager stalking Marlon Brando in the Tahitian jungle; J. R. Moehringer's quest to discover the true identity of an old boxer; Bill Plaschke's story about a woman with cerebral palsy who runs an obscure Los Angeles Dodgers Web site; Scott Anderson's story of his lifetime of covering war after war; Harrington's own tale of his interracial family's struggle to persevere; and many others. Written by reporters who were willing to reveal themselves in order to bring readers insights that were deeper than supposedly objective third-person stories, their articles are an invaluable resource for aspiring journalists, students, and teachers of the craft of writing, and any reader with an appreciation for masterful storytelling.
