About this Item

ix, 212 pages. 22 cm. Signed by author. Minor edge soiling. DJ has slight wear and soiling. From the author of the nationally syndicated column Conversations. This is her first book. She weaves the fascinating story of her own success into those of the celebrities she interviews. She was a reporter for the Boston Glove for about two decades. Derived from a Kirkus review: Christy, a Boston Globe reporter and syndicated columnist, takes a self-help, Me-generation approach to celebrity interviewing. After a brief, amusing account of her beginnings as a slightly irreverent fashion. Reporter, Christy interweaves her celebrity-encounters with some of her own attempts at self-analysis--in loose, thematic chapters. She empathizes mightily with women who beat the odds. Interviews about the price-of-fame--Barbara Walters, Peter Fonda--lead Christy to muse on her quest for byline fame, her choice of career over domesticity; Polly Bergen's insecurities are just like Christy's, it seems; an interview with super-coroner Noguchi becomes a discussion of Christy as a "success slave." There are confidences about interviewing techniques, about one-upmanship and the politics of celebrity journalism. Bookseller Inventory # 58186
