George Plimpton
George Plimpton is known for doing those things that the rest of us only dream about. Playing quarterback for the Detroit Lions, basketball for the Boston Celtics, hockey for the Boston Bruins, percussion with the New York Philharmonic, photographing centerfolds for Playboy and flying on a trapeze for the Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers Circus are but a few of the professional worlds he has explored. George Plimpton has used these and other similarly interesting experiences as the basis for his many books and magazine articles. In addition to being a celebrated writer, George Plimpton is acknowledged as a graceful and witty conversationalist. This combined with his wealth of intriguing experiences makes him an entertaining and enlightening speaker. George Plimpton is a speaker of enormously wide appeal and has appeared with equal success before Boy Scouts, business groups, women clubs, and university students. A native of New York City, George Plimpton has degrees from Harvard University and King's College, Cambridge University. In 1953, in Paris, he founded The Paris Review, a literary quarterly of which he is still editor. He has taught at Barnard College and has been associate editor at both Horizon Magazine and Harper's Magazine. Plimpton is a special contributor to Sports Illustrated. George Plimpton's hobbies include bird watching and fireworks (he is the fireworks commissioner of the City of New York).

Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
February 11, 2001 George Plimpton is the best-selling author and editor of nearly thirty books and the editor of The Paris Review . Perhaps he is best known for his practice of covering professional sports by participating in them as an amateur. In his first exploit, in 1959, he boxed three rounds with light-heavyweight champion Archie Moore. Plimpton wrote articles for Sports Illustrated about his experiences, many of which evolved into books, notably Out of My League (1961), about pitching against the great batters of the American and National baseball leagues; Paper Lion (1966), about playing quarterback at the summer training camp of the Detroit Lions; and The Bogey Man (1968), about participating in three golf tournaments on the pro circuit. Ernest Hemingway called Out of My League , "beautifully observed and incredibly conceived."
Truman Capote (1997), subtitled, "in which various friends, enemies, acquaintances, and detractors recall his turbulent career." Kirkus Reviews called the book "an A-list gabfest" and remarked on "the sheer variety of impressions, anecdotes and reminiscences about an inarguably remarkable, mercurial individual." The book is frequently compared to Plimpton's best selling

14. Bold Type: George Plimpton
An interview with plimpton, a scrapbook, and an excerpt from his book on Truman Capote.
Reading George Plimpton's new book on Truman Capote Truman Capote, In Which Various Friends, Enemies, Acquaintances, and Detractors Recall His Turbulent Career feels like being at a fabulous cocktail party, where the champagne is flowing and the gossip is juicy. Truman brought together the worlds of literature, politics, money, art, fashion, media, and film; in short, he was a locus of celebrity. Written as an "oral biography," the book is about as much fun as one can have between the pages of a book.
For this issue of Bold Type, we feature Truman Capote's Black and White Ball. An excerpt describes what it was like to have attended, told by those envied few who were invited. Look through a gallery of photos from the still-legendary event and check out an interview with author and participatory journalist George Plimpton.

TIME Great Images America Online Transcript from June 14, 1999 Timehost : Hello everyone. Welcome to our TIME chat tonight. We're very pleased to be joined by writer/editor/actor/and Renaissance man George Plimpton. He's just written an article for the TIME 100 about Muhammad Ali . Welcome, Mr. Plimpton! George Plimpton : Thank you very much. It's a pleasure to be talking to those who want to hear what I have to offer about Muhammad Ali. Timehost : Before we start, I'd just like to ask about how you came to write the article about Ali. George Plimpton : Well, I was asked to by the editors of TIME. I had written a book on boxing called "Shadow Box," which was largely about Muhammad Ali since I was a second-string boxing writer for Sports Illustrated.The first string writer was Mark Kram, a interesting name since it's the same backwards as forwards. He was unable to fly on planes, had a phobia about that, so I was sent to a number of fights overseas which he could not get to . The Frazier-Forman fight in Jamaica, and most particularly, the fight in Zaire, "The Rumble in the Jumble," as it was called between Ali and Forman. I covered many of Muhammad Ali's fights,including those he fought under the name Cassius Clay, and indeed the fight in which he won the world championship against Liston in Miami. So after all this, the TIME editors thought I could produce 700 words on the champ.
