Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "On January 7, 1980, in the run-up to the publication of his landmark bestseller 'Thy Neighbor's Wife,' Gay Talese received an anonymous handwrittern letter from a man in Colorado. 'Since learning of your long awaited study of coast-to-coast sex in America,' the letter began, 'I feel I have important information that I could contribute to its contents or to contents of a future book.' The man went on to tell Talese an astonishing secret: he had bought a motel outside Denver to satisfy his voyeuristic desires. Underneath the roof of his motel, the man had built an 'observation platform,' fitted with vents, through which he could watch his unwitting guests. Unsure what to make of this confession, Talese traveled to Colorado where he met the man--Gerald Foos--and verified his story in person, [and read some of his extensive journals, a secret record of America's changing social and sexual mores]"--Dust jacket flap.
Subject: Foos, Gerald.
