There’s no place for these things in just-the-facts journalism. Really? Who says?In News to Me: Finding and Writing Colorful Feature Stories, Barry Newman offers 29 new essays, interleaved with a broad range of his fully reprinted articles, to explain how he gets his ideas, his material, and turns it all into engrossing, funny—and publishable—stories. News to Me is meant for journalists, journalism teachers, journalism students and aspiring journalists, as well as for general readers who want to know how the sausage is made. “I’ve never been an editor or a bureau chief, or a teacher or a critic,” Newman says. “I’m a machine operator. I bang keys to make words. Here, I’m an exhibit.”
