Kafka And The Power of Metaphor
Posted by Jon Littman on October 13, 2010 in Innovation, Publishing, Storytelling

STORYTELLING FOR ME has always been about figuring a way in. As a journalist and author, I think mainly in three ways. Why do I care, how do I gain access to the characters or key facts, and how do I write something that strikes a cord. I recently wrote a piece called Lance Armstrong’s […]

Legal Drama: The Grand Jury
Posted by Jon Littman on October 11, 2010 in Innovation, Storytelling

TRIALS ARE NATURAL STORIES. There are heroes and villains and dramatic resolution. You are either found innocent or guilty. But what about a grand jury?

Amazon Review: Crashing Augusta

5.0 out of 5 stars sports writing at its best, December 15, 2010

By Harvey L. Myman (California) –

This review is from: Crashing Augusta: Real life tales of sports, men, and murder (Paperback)

“If you wondered whether smart, literate sports writing still exists, look no further than this powerful book from Jonathan Littman. And while his prose alone is worth the price of admission, the true strength in the book is found in Littman’s reporting. He takes the reader inside of the greatest institutions and events in sports, from the Super Bowl to the Masters, revealing often dark corners that will never be explored by the ESPN hype machine or the beat reporters who are beholden to the teams and the leagues. He also explores the worlds of steroids and the amazing subculture of the world’s fastest runners. This is, quite simply, a remarkable book that should be required reading in graduate journalism classes.”

— Harvey Myman, president of Rocket Science Productions and former Assistant Managing Editor at the Orange County Register.
