Description

Each summer, The Banff Centre's Literary Journalism program takes in eight senior journalists and writers and charges them with a simple, if daunting task: Write about something you really care about. In this installment of the Banff Centre Press's literary journalism series, participants push boundaries and arrive at some of their most passionate work. Taking Risks collects the work of twelve accomplished journalists on a range of subjects as diverse as their voices: the curious nature of the celebrity interview, writers "borrowing" material from other writers, the extinction of Aboriginal languages, a jazz musician's troubled life. Offering unique insights, the writers take risks with style and substance, laying themselves on the line with an intimacy seldom seen in contemporary journalism.

Editorial Review

"All of the pieces in this volume have the virtue of being by writers more interested in the world than they are in themselves. They all manage to imply that the world out there is a good deal more fascinating than anything writers have yet managed to say." - Bert Archer, NOW
