MOBI Robert A. Caro ´ MOBI Working PDF/EPUB ´ ´ gsagency.co

From the two time Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Power Broker and The Years of Lyndon Johnson an unprecedented gathering of vivid candid deeply revealing recollections about his experiences researching and writing his acclaimed booksFor the first time in his long career Robert Caro gives us a glimpse into his own life and work in these evocatively written personal pieces He describes what it was like to interview the mighty Robert Moses what it felt like to begin discovering the extent of the political power Moses wielded the combination of discouragement and exhilaration he felt confronting the vast holdings of the Lyndon B Johnson Library and Museum in Austin Texas his encounters with witnesses including longtime residents wrenchingly displaced by the construction of Moses’ Cross Bronx Expressway and Lady Bird Johnson acknowledging the beauty and influence of one of LBJ’s mistresses He gratefully remembers how after years of loneliness he found a writers’ community at the New York Public Library’s Frederick Lewis Allen Room and details the ways he goes about planning and composing his books Caro recalls the moments at which he came to understand that he wanted to write not just about the men who wielded power but about the people and the politics that were shaped by that power And he talks about the importance to him of the writing itself of how he tries to infuse it with a sense of place and mood to bring characters and situations to life on the page Taken together these reminiscences–some previously published some written expressly for this book–bring into focus the passion the wry self deprecation and the integrity with which this brilliant historian has always approached his work

    Turn every page Never assume anyhting Turn every goddamned page Alan Hathaway quoted by Robert Caro Working Researching Interviewing Writing It is weird to give a Caro book only four stars I've read nearly everyhing except the big Whale The Power Broker Robert Moses and the Fall of New York he's writing and it seems nearly perfect He is one of my favorite writers of nonfiction ever His fanatacism to his craft is incredible His old school approach to research and writing is fantastic But still I only gave this book four stars much for the same reason why I gave McPhee only four stars for his writing book Draft No 4 On the Writing Process I've read too much of it before A lot of both books were cobbled together from other pieces and previous books for example On Power So part of my four star review is due to my hunger and expectations for Caro I want new and I want and part is due to Caro not his strongest book and not original Even in this book I think there were two maybe three? different sections where the story of Caro's wife selling their home to help finance The Power Broker Robert Moses and the Fall of New York pops up I know the story I've read it before So by the last time it is mentioned in the book I begin to feel it is as much about myth making about Caro and again I'm a Caro acolyte I BELIEVE the myth as it is about his craft
