He makes a fair comment at the end of the book when he compares his victimless voyeurism to that of Big Brother in the U.S. today. As both of the motels he claims to have done his voyeuristic activities are torn down I have to wonder if this actually took place. However, the author, Gay Talese claims to have joined Mr. Foos at least once. Hard not to think about this the next time you stay at a cheesy motel.

Asinine. This was like reading some lonely dude's letters to Penthouse. I do not doubt that this motel owner spied on hundreds of people over the years, but I doubt the truthfulness of what he witnessed, and I absolutely question his "objective" opinion on what he saw. Terrible journalism on the part of Telese as well.
