Fast Takes: Slices of Life Through a Journalist's Eye
(Hampton Roads Publishing, 1990). 
Here’s proof that good reporting is as compelling as any fiction. In just a few pages, each of these “fast takes” leads you to places you’ve never been, into lives you’ve never lived, into worlds you’ve never imagined. Here are more than two dozen portraits of the famous (singer Patsy Cline, author Jack Kerouac, basketball star Moses Malone, LSD guru Timothy Leary) and the faceless (renegade bikers, Vietnam vets, victims of AIDS, Grateful Deadheads and born-again Christians), all vividly rendered by one of the nation’s best daily journalists.
