Chris Jones rarely uses metaphors or allegories or any frivolous literary devices. He's fixated on details because all that matters are the words and getting them right. Matthew Scianitti goes behind the stories and speaks with Esquire’s writer-at-large in this exclusive interview. Jones talks about his dislike of Tiger Woods, his admiration of Ricky Williams and The Truth, his desire to win awards, his unforgettable profile of Roger Ebert and his hope that his stories have an emotional payoff

Look for Scianitti’s profile of Jones in the Winter 2011 issue of the Ryerson Review of Journalism, launching on December 14 at the Cadillac Lounge in Toronto.
