Product Description

Book Description

This is a comprehensive examination of five of today's most popular and important nonfiction artists: Gay Talese, Tom Wolfe, John McPhee, Joan Didion, and Norman Mailer. Entering the great unexplored territory of contemporary criticism, this book examines literary nonfiction in the broad context of the prose narrative form and discusses the role it plays in the American literary tradition.
