In 1963, Gay Talese published what is widely regarded as the best profile of a celebrity ever written. Talese followed Sinatra around Las Vegas for a month and wrote the article for Esquire. Now journalist Elon Green has talked with Talese about that article for the Nieman Storyboard project at Harvard University. Green tells us how he came to interview Talese and what the great writer said about his encounter with Sinatra.
