Thy Neighbor’s Wife by Gay Talese is a well-known classic book written by an author still active in the publishing field. There is very little I can add to the plethora of reviews that have been written about this well-known work, so why have I bothered? The Voyeur’s Motel, also by Gay Talese, is listed as a July 2016 release on Kindle. It presents interesting ethical journalistic questions as well as moral questions on the responsibility of a person receiving information that may indicate criminal intent. A recent publication, the price of the book at Kindle is higher than I am willing to pay. So, while I am waiting for the price to come down or the possibility of someone giving me a free copy, I decided to read this earlier work; later I’ll write what I consider a comparison of author styles.
