Summer is the time for camp—and shenanigans. And this week William D. Cohan has a report on the controversy swirling at Bohemian Grove, the ultra-exclusive, all-male campground for some of the most powerful men in America. Then the literary legend Gay Talese will join us. Along with Tom Wolfe and other magazine writers of the 1960s, Talese created the New Journalism with profiles such as the one he wrote for Esquire entitled “Frank Sinatra Has a Cold.” It is now considered the greatest magazine profile ever, and Talese is here to talk about the story behind the writing of that story. And finally, Nicholas Foulkes will reveal why taste-makers and collectors are falling over themselves to get a certain kind of wristwatch from the 1980s.
