Between 1960 and 1976, The New Yorker staff writer Lillian Ross wrote a series of articles for the magazine’s “Talk of the Town” section covering François Truffaut’s visits to New York: for The 400 Blows in 1960, The Soft Skin in 1964, The Wild Child in 1970, Day for Night in 1973, and Small Change in 1976. This book collects these articles together for the first time.

Lillian Ross was a staff writer at The New Yorker. She wrote often about moviemakers—including Clint Eastwood, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Oliver Stone, Tommy Lee Jones, Wes Anderson, and Francis Ford Coppola. She lived in Manhattan and passed away in 2017 at the age of 99.
