Texas Bar Journal Interviews Talmage Boston
(Reprinted with permission of the Texas Bar Journal)
Talmage Boston often wears a pensive look, his eyes slightly squinted and brows furrowed, that suggests he is deep in thought. And chances are, he is. An attorney for almost 38 years as well as a writer and professional interviewer, Boston has a lot on his mind—whether it’s a strategy for an upcoming trial, a sentence to tweak on his new manuscript, or the questions that will get Henry Kissinger to say things he has never said before.
When it comes to writing, the Winstead litigator focuses on the topics he knows and likes the best, a successful approach considering that his books on the history of baseball and lawyering have received praise from the likes of Nolan Ryan, John Grisham, and former U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburgh. Boston’s fourth book marries his writing and interviewing careers with his lifelong passion for presidential history, featuring edited transcripts of his conversations with dozens of prominent political figures and historians. Cross-Examining History: A Lawyer Gets Answers From the Experts About Our Presidents will be published by Bright Sky Press in September. Click here to read the full article
