The Bullfighter Checks Her Makeup: My Encounters with Extraordinary People, Susan Orlean

The author is (was?)  a writer for The New Yorker, and I picked this up more for studying her style of writing. Consider crafting statements such as this:

She has an apartment in Paris and a house in Beverly Hills, a room key in Manhattan, the story of Hollywood of the late sixties and seventies in her head, and no particular plans.


There is a beautiful structure to her articles, most end with a poignant, wistful, cliff-hanging quality that leaves the reader wanting more. 

Much to learn…
