Portrait of Hemingway by Lillian Ross( Book )

38 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 13, 1950, Lillian Ross's first portrait of Ernest Hemingway was published in The New Yorker. It was an account of two days Hemingway spent in New York in 1949 on his way from Havana to Europe. This candid and affectionate profile was tremendously controversial at the time, to the great surprise of its author. Booklist said, "The piece immediately conveys to the reader the kind of man Hemingway was--hard-hitting, warm, and exuberantly alive." It remains the classic eyewitness account of the legendary writer, and it is reproduced here with the preface Lillian Ross prepared for an edition of Portrait in 1961

In this book, author (and New Yorker staff writer) Lillian Ross follows the progress of John Huston's filming of Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage. First published as a serial in the New Yorker, the book covers not only the film's creation but its subsequent fate at the hands of its studio bosses. Along the way, the author provides what the publisher describes as "everything any sane person should want to know about how a big film studio functions." Thus, this work has become the definitive book on the Hollywood community--its language, its manners, its preoccupations, its ideas

Reporting back : notes on journalism by Lillian Ross( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ross (Here but Not Here) has written profiles and Talk of the Town pieces for the New Yorker for more than 50 years and in that time has built up an arsenal of journalistic techniques, which she shares here in some detail. She discusses her feelings about journalism, praising her New Yorker colleagues (notably the late editor William Shawn) and offering her definition of journalism (factual reporting built of good writing and singular humor). The majority of the book is filled with Ross's deconstruction of some of her best-loved pieces, including 1949's Come In, Lassie! (about politics in the film business); 1950's How Do You Like It Now, Gentlemen? (a profile of Ernest Hemingway); and 1960's The Yellow Bus (concerning a group of tourists visiting New York City)
