The New Journalism
Tom Wolfe, Edward Warren Johnson
Harper & Row, 1973 - Journalism - 394 pages
"In the short space of one decade, a new style of reportage has taken hold to the point where it has all but supplanted the novel as the most revered, prestigious and powerful literary form. Writers with reputations as fine novelists turned to writing the New Journalism; feature writers for newspapers, thinking themselves to be marking time until they, too, wrote The Novel, began writing the New Journalism. Tom Wolfe, who has watched and helped this new genre of novelistic nonfiction blossom over the years, here introduces, annotates and provides appendices for an anthology of the finest examples of the New Journalism written from 1962 through 1970"--Jacket.
