Picture by Lillian Ross ( Book )
42 editions published between 1952 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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)
